State troopers to take part in Operation Zero Tolerance
Placeholder Image

Now through midnight on Labor Day, Georgia state troopers are joining law enforcement officials from across the state for Operation Zero Tolerance, an enforcement campaign that targets impaired drivers.

OZT is coordinated by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. This is the second of three OZT enforcement periods of the year. The campaign is a part of the national “Over the Limit, Under Arrest” program.

“A driver who operates a vehicle impaired puts all others on the road in danger.  Georgia state troopers take saving lives seriously and they do not hesitate to arrest those that choose to drive impaired,” said Col. Mark W. McDonough, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Safety. “During this period, troopers are working with local officers and deputies in their areas for concentrated patrols and roadchecks.”

GSP is teaming with law enforcement counterparts in neighboring states for the Annual Hands Across the Border Program. Events are planned each morning through Thursday in an effort to promote safe driving.

Labor Day marks the end of the 100 Days of Summer HEAT (highway enforcement of aggressive traffic) campaign, an effort by law enforcement to combat aggressive and impaired drivers.
