The HEAT is on GA’s Speeders
Law enforcement agencies will crack down on dangerous, aggressive and speeding drivers to reduce fatal crashes during the holiday driving period from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
The HEAT — Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic — will be on those who choose to break the law. For the ninth straight summer, police from 159 Georgia counties and the Georgia State Patrol will be conducting the 100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T. campaign.
Director of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety Harris Blackwood said, “Our partners in law enforcement will be launching the 100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T. campaign in all corners of the state this year … looking for all kinds of unsafe motorists … from drunk drivers and aggressive speeders to distracted drivers who continue to text while behind the wheel.”
The bottom line: If you speed, you’ll be cited. If you fail to properly buckle your seat belts or properly restrain your children, you will be cited. If you are cited for drunk driving, you’ll go to jail.
Click It or Ticket — a crackdown on motorists not using their seat belts — will also be a special focus for officers statewide through June 3, 2012.
With dangerous drivers off the road we’ll all be more safe.
