Police: Find a responsible way home on New Year's

Posted: Updated:


Troopers want to remind drivers they are out in full force over the New Year's holiday.

Troopers say it's simple- if you drink and drive you will go to jail, no exceptions. Even if you've had a small amount, they're encouraging people to come up with a responsible way to get to their destination.

While Driving under the influence is a major topic, they also want to make sure that drivers are buckling up, and going the speed limit.

"While you're traveling during the holidays, if you would leave in time, if you would make sure you have a route that you are going to take, make sure that your car is ready to hit the road. And mainly just give yourself plenty of time to arrive to your destination," said Georgia State Trooper Andrew McKenzie.

If you have plans to go out and celebrate, check with the establishment to see if they offer a courtesy shuttle or make arrangements to reserve a taxi.
