Thomasville - The Governor's Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) gave the Thomasville GSP post a plaque today. It recognizes troopers for saving lives and preventing injuries during the "You drink and drive, you lose" program.

Deputy Director Robert Mikell says, "They're the ones who are out there in the middle of the night when we're all at home asleep. They're the ones who are out on the street. They're the ones putting their lives on the line. They're the ones making these, in some cases, very dangerous traffic stops and they're doing it to save lives for people in Georgia and it's fantastic."

During operation zero tolerance, Thomasville troopers handed out 971 citations, including 19 DUIs.
