Written by  Thursday, 26 December 2013 09:45

  The latest information available this morning showed no fatal crashes were reported in Georgia over the 30-hour Christmas holiday travel period.  The Georgia State Patrol investigated 90 traffic crashes that resulted in 51 injuries between 6 p.m. Christmas Eve and midnight Christmas Day.   Last year 26 people died in traffic crashes across the state. Another 1,164 were injured in 3,691 crashes.  


  The New Year's holiday travel period begins New Year's Eve at 6 p.m. and is also 30 hours long.   A total of 7 people were killed in traffic crashes last year.


  Last year both Christmas and New Year holiday travel periods were 102 hours each.


  Troopers are cautioning drivers to plan for a sober designated driver if alcohol consumption will be part of the celebrations. During last year’s Christmas holiday period, 225 arrests were made by state troopers for driving under the influence, and 352 people were arrested during the New Year’s holiday.
