GA's operation Zero in full effect

Georgia's statewide Operation Zero Tolerance holiday enforcement crackdown begins Friday, December 17 and runs through Sunday, January 2, 2011.  "We're even telling motorists when to watch out for more flashing lights in their rearview mirror because this campaign is completely about saving lives," says GOHS Director Bob Dallas.  "It's not about revenue and it's not about writing more tickets. It's about making sure people survive the holidays."

 "When we remember what we're grateful for this holiday season, we will include our dedicated enforcement partners who run their concentrated patrols and sobriety checkpoints to protect the millions of innocent motorists who will take to the roads to visit family and friends this month," says Director Dallas. "These high visibility enforcement campaigns play a critical role in reducing impaired driving crashes and DUI deaths in Georgia."

 So remember, whether you've had way too many or just one too many, it's not worth the risk!" says GOHS Director Dallas.   "Get a designated driver.  Don't let 2010 end in an arrest or even worse for you." For more about Operation Zero Tolerance visit the GOHS website at www.gahighwaysafety.org.
