Law enforcement cracking down on bad drivers

June 24, 2005

Albany - Georgia law enforcement are already cracking down on dangerous drivers to make sure the July 4th holiday isn't as deadly as Memorial Day. 35 people died in accidents over Memorial Day weekend, breaking a 36 year record for traffic fatalities for the holiday.

Starting June 24th, law enforcement across the state are starting a Zero-Tolerance Campaign. Officers will be stopping drivers at roadblocks and checkpoints, looking for drunk drivers.

"We're putting up with nothing out on the roadways. Aggressive driving, DUI's and seatbelt enforcement, there will be a very limited amount of warnings going out," said GSP Trooper Scott McClure.

If you get caught drinking and driving, you'll go straight to jail. The Zero-Tolerance campaigns runs through July 4th.
