THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) – A new push to crack down on traffic violators in Thomasville is already showing results.

During several road checks over the weekend authorities wrote 58 citations and made nine arrests.

Thomasville police teamed up several other agencies to conduct the road checks.

They focused on seat belt use, child safety restraints, and DUI cases.

Thomasville Police spokesman Lt. Eric Hampton said, "The main focus of this is to make sure our roads are safe, our citizens are safe as they drive to and from their destinations and not have to be worried about being hurt or even killed by someone who is driving illegally on the roads."

Thomasville police say they will return the favor and help other law enforcement agencies with their road checks in the near future.
