Roadblocks will be set up around Albany

December 22, 2005

Albany - The roads are already busy with holiday travelers, and police encourage you to be safe and warn you not to drink and drive. Albany police will set up roadblocks throughout town this weekend. They'll be looking for drunk and impaired drivers and seat belt violators.

"A large amount of officers will be out on the road, different jurisdiction working together to try to reduce drunk drivers on the road. So drunk drivers beware," said Sgt. Tony Moore, APD.

Operation Zero Tolerance is from December 26th through January 2nd. During that time if you get pulled over, you will get a ticket! Police remind you to slow down, be patient on crowded roads, and don't drive when you're sleepy - that's can be just as dangerous as driving drunk.
