Operation Zero Tolerance: If you drive buzzed, you'll get busted

Dec. 17, 2007

Around Georgia (WTVM) - Operation Zero Tolerance is underway for the holiday season.

State troopers are encouraging responsible driving. They say the travel period between Thanksgiving and New Years is one of the most dangerous times of the year accounting for nearly 10 percent of all annual crashes.

Last year, 162 individuals died on Georgia roadways and nationwide 1,076 died during the same time period.

During "OZT" Georgia law enforcement agencies will conduct a joint wave of high-visibility sobriety checkpoints throughout the state from NOW through Tuesday, January 1, 2008 to catch DUI-drivers.

If you plan to party hard this holiday season make sure you have a designated driver.
