Albany-  A fatal accident in Lee County Tuesday has the Dougherty County Police stressing the importance of routine checks to keep unlawful drivers off Georgia's roadways. 

As part of the Click It or Ticket Campaign, Dougherty County officer and state troopers set up a roadblock on Pine Bluff Road near War Eagle Drive Thursday. Officers checked for suspended licenses, seat belt usage, proof of insurance, and other violations. While our crews were there, a motorist was handcuffed for driving with a suspended license. 

"One of the arrests we're making right now is for someone driving on a suspended drivers license. That's a jailable offense in the state of Georgia even if you're out of state with a suspended license. We made one yesterday, on the same thing. We average one or two a day," said Lt. T.S. Jackson, Dougherty County Police. 

The Dougherty County Police plan to conduct two or three roadblocks a week through the end of the year.
