Numbers are in from Memorial Day weekend; 17 people killed in car wrecks
Numbers are in and officers say 17 people died over the holiday weekend.
There were more than 330 people pulled over for DUI.
Sgt. David Holland with Georgia State Patrol says it’s important for drivers to stay vigilant, and it all starts with the basics.
“Primarily be a cautious driver. Be alert, be defensive, don’t let road rage take over. If you see somebody that’s not driving the way they should…back off don’t try to get in front of the,” Holland said.
Holland says GSP made more than 500 stops over the weekend.
With vacation season kicking off, Holland says officers will be on high patrol the entire time.
