Holiday DUI crackdown has begun

ATLANTA -- The Governor's Office of Highway safety has begun its annual "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" campaign, a zero tolerance project aimed at cracking down on drunk drivers during the holiday season.

"The message is short and sweet," GOHS director Harris Blackwood said. "Drive sober or you'll get pulled over. Drinking alcohol and driving is no present for anyone, so if you plan to consume alcohol, you better plan for a sober driver to get you home safely."

Police officers, state troopers and deputies will be participating in the program until Jan. 2.

Georgia saw an 11 percent decrease in impaired driving fatalities in 2010, officials said.

Where's the Governor's crackdown on illegal aliens without insurance?

We've had a crackdown on illegals in Gwinnett since our 287(g) program was implemented, and it's working extremely well. The standard trifecta for them seems to be DUI, no license, no insurance - check out the Gwinnett County Sheriff Docket on line - enjoy!
