Valdosta - Law Enforcers in Georgia are out in full force.

Monday is the first day of 100 days of summer heat.

Police, sheriff, and state patrol units will all be out cracking down on seatbelt violators, speeders, and drunk drivers.

They hope it will help keep drivers safe through the summer holidays and police in Valdosta believe it works.

"We do see a little bit lower because people know that we are out there looking and it does increase public safety when people are buckling up, driving slower or not drinking and driving. Of course, it brings down our injuries and deaths for that period," says Sgt. Earl Durrance of the Valdosta Police.

Summer Heat will last through Labor Day weekend.
