Drunk and drugged drivers The Georgia State Patrol is warning w]t4be arrested and prosecuted to the drivers that if they drink and drive dur- fullest extent of the law. ing the holiday season, they could pay the price. With the holidays upon us and more people expected to travel Georgia's roadways during the extended holiday period, this month could be one of the deadliest periods for impaired driving fatalities. To protect Georgia families during this holiday period, the Georgia Governor's Office of Highway Safety is supporting statewide law enforcement efforts to protect citizens from drunk and drugged driving. As part of Georgia's Operation Zero Tolerance and the nationwide You Drink and Drive You Lose mobilization initia- tive, local and state law enforcement officials will be out in full force con- "In Georgia, drunk and drugged driving crashes claim nearly 500 lives each year," said Governor's Office of Highway Safety director Yvonne L. McBride. "With more people expected to trav- el on Georgia's roadways during the hol- iday period, our law enforcement will be working overtime to protect families from drunk and drugged drivers." The Governor's Office of Highway Safety reminds everyone if you find it hard to figure whether you've had too many drinks to drive - don't risk it. Impairment begins with the first drink and impaired driving is against the law. Most likely, if you're feeling "buzzed," you are impaired and ff you drive, law enforcement will likely catch you. The Georgia State Patrol offices in Meriwether and Troup Counties will hold road blocks in Meriwether, Talbot, Troup and Harris countie s during the holiday period. So will city police departments and both the Meriwether and Harris County Sheriff's Departments. "There will be no warnings," McBride said. "Our message is simple, if you drink and drive you will lose. Violators can lose their licenses, time from their jobs and lose money in high fines and court costs as well as possibly face imprison- ment for repeat offenders, assault and vehicular manslaughter. If you're caught driving while drunk or drugged during the holidays in Georgia, you'll be spending your money on bail, fines and towing fees instead of other tgs."
