When it comes to car accidents, the Fourth of July holiday is one of the most
dangerous times to be on the road. The Governors Office of Highway Safety has
reported that over the last two years, Georgia has averaged 88 alcohol impaired
crashes from the period of July 3 to July 5.
In order to keep the roads safe, Georgia law enforcement will begin Operation Zero Tolerance this Friday through July 7. Be prepared to see more state patrol, city and county police officers on the road and roadblocks to test people for driving under influence. The Georgia Department of natural resources will also be enforcing Georgia’s new DUI laws for boaters that went into effect on May 15, 2013. The new law sets a limit of .08 blood alcohol limit for boaters down from .10.
