Ga. troopers participating in National Holiday Lifesaver Weekend

ATLANTA — Georgia state troopers will be stepping up traffic enforcement this weekend as part of a nationwide effort.

As part of National Holiday Lifesaver Weekend, troopers will engage in so-called “high visibility patrols” and road checks aimed at reducing traffic deaths.

“We are joining this nationwide effort because it focuses on driving behaviors that kill across the nation and this is not just a local problem,” he said. “This time of year is especially dangerous on our roads and that danger is only compounded by alcohol and drug impaired drivers.”

In addition, state troopers will be patrolling with their lights on Friday as part of National Lights On for Life Day.
