GSP enforces New Year's zero tolerance for drinking and driving

December 30, 2002

Valdosta - Georgia State Troopers are enforcing a zero tolerance for drunk drivers this New Year's Eve.

Troopers have predicted 758 accidents, with 297 injuries and 8 fatalities. Over half of those will be alcohol related, but state troopers say if you drink and drive, you'll go to jail.

"We're going to be out in full force New Years Eve, with road blocks and patrols all over the area, and if you drink, you'll spend New Year's Eve and New Year's Day behind bars," said Corporal John K. Luke.

Last, year, 14 people died over the New Year's holiday period. It begins tomorrow night at 6 and ends Wednesday at midnight.
