DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Officials want everyone to go out and have a good time this weekend, and to be smart in doing so.
Captain Ken Faust with the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office reminds us that just a couple of drinks leads to impairment.
He says to have a plan ahead of time, before you and the people you're with start drinking.
"You and your friends go out, well you've been the designated driver. You don't drink. That's your job. You are to get us home, and that's the easiest solution to driving over New Year's Eve have a designated driver," said Captain Ken Faust, Dougherty Co. Sheriff's Office.
