"The Labor Day holiday period is the traditional end of the summer travel season," says Colonel Ellis, "Volume is likely to be heavy because this week- end also makes the start-up of high school and college football games and Fall fairs and festi- vals across the state. That accounts for crash predictions reaching 2,186." Colonel Ellis says, "It's a hol- iday that often draws impaired drivers to our highways. State Troopers will be looking for those drunk and drugged driv- ers and for their potential vic- rims who fail to wear seat belts." Last year, seven of Georgia's ten fatal crash victims weren't using seat belts or child safety seats. The Colonel says, "Many could be alive today ifa few cru- cial seconds were invested to use then" safety equipment." GSP is predicting 619 injuries during Labor Day 2000.
