LEESBURG, GA (WALB) - You better follow the rules of the road Friday night.

Law enforcers from across south Georgia are working together in Lee County looking for traffic violators.

Police officers and deputies from 15 nearby agencies fanned out across the county setting up the blocks.

They've already made at least one DUI arrest, and drug dogs are also on the job.

"We're checking drivers license, seat belts and child safety seats and anything else that may come up such as people with drugs in the vehicle," said Sheriff Reggie Rachals, Lee County Sheriff's Office.

"Everybody is working together and promoting public safety we work together and help each other, and our main goal is to make sure everybody is safe," said Chief Charles Moore, Leesburg Police Department.

The road blocks will continue overnight.

It's held in conjunction with the Governor's Office of Highway Safety to keep dangerous drivers off the road and make sure Georgia drivers buckle up.
