Albany--The busiest travel season of the year is just beginning. That means your chances of being involved in a wreck are going up. Law enforcers want to make sure you don't get injured, or worse.
Thursday night in Tift County, Georgia State Troopers and teams of local law enforcers from across south central and middle Georgia got an early start on Memorial Day weekend traffic enforcement. Shortly after they started their first roadblock, they caught a man they said was driving impaired.
One man who makes his living on the road said he didn't mind getting caught in the roadblock. Truck driver Joe Husband said, "If you have people out here that's impaired and all, they need to be off the road and we see this all the time. So, if you do what you're supposed to do and live within the rules then you have nothing to be worried about."
This week, the Governor's Office of Highway Safety kicked off 100 Days of Summer HEAT. HEAT stands for Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic. It's the third straight year waves of patrols in all 159 counties will crack down on speeders, aggressive and impaired drivers, and people who don't wear their seat belts.
