Georgia Launches Summer Zero Tolerance DUI Campaign

Written by  Tuesday, 24 June 2014 09:11

  It may be hard to believe but the July 4th celebration is just two weeks away.  its a favorite holiday for friends and family to celebrate America with food, parades, parties and fireworks. However, for some, the holiday will go from festive to fatal when they choose to get behind the wheel after drinking. To help prevent needless tragedy, the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is once again joining the national impaired driving effort to get drunk drivers off the road and into a jail cell.
 

  To crack down on drunk driving this Fourth of July, law enforcement across the state will be out in full force, aggressively targeting those who get behind the wheel of a car while impaired.  In Georgia, GOHS has launched Operation Zero Tolerance in conjunction with the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.  The message is simple...If you’re over the limit, you’ll be under arrest.

 

  The good news is Fourth of July travel period crash and injury rates decreased slightly over the last year, but they were still far too high. Similarly, fatality rates remained even with six over a 30-hour travel period in 2012 and 20 over a 102-hour travel period in 2013.

 

  Operation Zero Tolerance started Friday and runs through July 6. The Fourth of July travel period with be a 78-hour period from July 3 to July 6.
