Warwick-- Not only will shoppers hit the streets this weekend, but so will law enforcement officers.

Authorities in Warwick on Georgia 300 are prepared to stop every car and take whatever action necessary to help keep Southwest Georgia roads safe this weekend.

Dozens of law enforcement officials set up along Georgia 300 for a weekend-long program that targets impaired drivers through patrols and sobriety checkpoints.

Nationally, traffic safety experts estimate that one person is injured in an alcohol-related crash every two minutes. And no matter how many citations they have to write or arrests they have to make, law enforcement officials say they will do their best to keep impaired drivers off the roads.

Motorists should contact law enforcement officials if they see other drivers on the roadway who may be impaired.

Because Operation Zero Tolerance is a statewide campaign, there will be road checks all over the state taking place this weekend. So, if you plan on traveling out of Southwest Georgia be prepared to be stopped. Operation Zero Tolerance is part of the National "You Drink and Drive. You lose" program.

The state's campaign begins today and will run through Sunday, January 4th.
