ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Triple-A auto club estimates an 11% increase of traffic this Thanksgiving Holiday Travel Period.

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety warns a Thanksgiving seat belt crackdown starts Monday.

More than 500 law enforcement agencies statewide will mobilize through the Holiday weekend looking for people not wearing seat belts.

More than half the Georgians killed in car crashes in 2008 were not buckled up.

Law enforcers want fewer tragedies on Peach state roads.

Dougherty County Police Lt. Thomas Jackson said  "Our biggest thing we want them to slow down, don't drink, and wear that seat belt. And get there safely and celebrate with you family. Who wants to go to a funeral during Thanksgiving. "

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety says 9 out of 10 Georgians now wear seat belts, but they want everyone to buckle up this Thanksgiving Holiday travel period.
