DON’T LET THIS 4TH OF JULY BLOW UP IN YOUR FACE!
DID YOU KNOW: JULY 4TH IS THE SECOND DEADLIEST DAY ON AMERICA’S ROADWAYS!
In 2006, 27% of all drivers involved in traffic related crashes during the 4th of July holiday period possessed a blood alcohol concentration(BAC) of .08 or higher which is an illegal amount in all states in America. During the same period, there were a total of 659 traffic related fatalities. Out of that number, 37% involved a driver with a BAC of .08 or hight.
This is why the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Department, the Georgia State Patrol, the Summerville and Trion Police Departments announced today that the law enforecement officials will be out in FULL FORCE with an aggressive "DRIVING OVER THE LIMI, UNDER ARREST" enforcement blitz.
"Too many people still don’t understand that alcohol, drugs and driving just don’t mix! Impaired driving is no accident nor is it a victimless crime. Too many lives are being lost and we need everyone’s help to stop it," said Sheriff Ralph Kellett.
