STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. - “Drink” and “be merry” are the top two activities expected at many holiday parties set to get underway and law enforcement wants you to keep this message in mind: “Drive sober or get pulled over.”
It's the only warning Georgia State Patrol troopers will give as they start their “Holiday DUI Enforcement” campaign.
Wednesday, a sea of law enforcement officers lined up in full force at Stone Mountain Park to show support for their zero-tolerance policy when it comes to drinking and driving.
Authorities report more than 10,000 people died in drunk-driving crashes last year.
Unfortunately, Christmas is one of the times of the year when they see those numbers spike.
