Dougherty County -- The state predicts 19-people will die on crowded Georgia roads over the Memorial Day weekend. Extra enforcers will be on patrol this weekend.

Dougherty County Police HEAT Units wrote tickets Friday afternoon to speeders and seat belt violators, trying to save lives.

Dougherty County Police Lt. Thomas Jackson said  "seventy two percent of people who wear their seat belts, and wear it correctly. Not under their arm, but over their shoulder correctly survive wrecks out here. That's why we are saying that so loud and clear. And we ask that you slow down."

Officers say that is your warning. They will give tickets to speeders or people not buckled up.

State officials predict there will be 2300 crashes between six tonight and midnight Monday and more 1200 injuries.
