“100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T. Initiative” begins
The 100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T. and the Memorial Day Click-it or Ticket initiatives are both aimed at keeping Georgia’s roads and waterways safe.
Harris Blackwood, the director of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, wants people all over the state to be cautious and sober when getting behind a wheel this weekend.
“We want people to choose the ride they would like to have,” Blackwood said, “We don’t want to make that choice for you, and that choice could be made in the form of a law enforcement vehicle, a [Department of Natural Resources] boat, an ambulance, or the very worst, a Hearse.”
Aside from drunk driving and seat belt violations, law enforcement will also be on the lookout for those who text and drive.
The Memorial Day Click-it or Ticket campaign runs through June 1st, and 100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T. ends on September 2nd.
