LAKE PARK, GA (WALB) - Memorial Day weekend can often bring in a high number of Driving Under the Influence citations, but not for Lake Park.
The city did not have a single arrest for driving under the influence. Chief Breletic says they had their officers out all weekend, and believes the strong presence was a good warning to drivers.
"You would think on the Lake, a hot 98 degree temperature, if they had an alcoholic beverage it would affect them more. It seems like more people are being a lot more responsible with that and we thank the public for doing that," said Police Chief James Breletic.
Officials say they did have to write quite a few tickets for seatbelt violations.
