THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –  Nicer weather means more people on the road.   That's why the Thomasville Police Department is stepping up traffic enforcement.  

Officers say more people visit Thomasville as warmer weather and spring break approach, and they want to keep the roads safe.     

They'll increase monitoring at high-accident intersections, conduct city-wide random road checks, and use radar and lasers to detect speeders.

"They'll be more young people on the road, out of school and we want them to slow down," said TPD Public Information Officer Lt. Eric Hampton. "And we want grown ups to encourage their children when they're driving, operating a motor vehicle to be safe, operate under the speed limit and look out for red lights."

Lt. Eric Hampton says the Thomasville Police department also has zero-tolerance for seat belt and child safety violations, speeding in school zones, and driving under the influence.
