LAKE PARK, GA (WALB) –As Labor Day weekend approaches, law officers are preparing to crack down on drunk drivers.

As part of the 19th annual Hands Across the Border DUI enforcement campaign, a convoy of officers from south Georgia and north Florida headed down the interstate from the Lake Park Welcome Center to show their commitment to keeping roads safe. Law officers have a simple message for people traveling this weekend.

"Do the speed limit," said Tift County Sgt. James Partain, whose also the Southern Regional Traffic Enforcement coordinator. "Don't drink and drive and wear your seat bealt . If you'll do those things, you probably won't see blue lights behind you or in your mirror."

Checkpoints in Lowndes County Tuesday night led to 65 arrests including 13 for drunk driving.
