According to a recent article in the Walton Tribune, Georgia’s State Patrol is going to be stepping up enforcement of GA’s traffic laws over the next month and throughout 2014 with increased efforts to discourage speeding, texting while driving, driving without safety restraints in place(seat belt or car seat) and driving under the influence of either prescription medications or alcohol.
According to the article and Cpl. Jeremiah Slayton, assistant post commander for Post 46 south of Monroe, which covers Walton, Rockdale and Newton counties;
Traditionally during the holiday season we target motorists on the travel days before and after the holidays, as most people are usually with their families on Thanksgiving day and Christmas……But we are going to work harder on ensuring those efforts do not drop throughout the year.
For drivers in Walton County, Rockdale County and Newton County, this means you’ve been forewarned to obey the laws, as you are more likely to get a speeding ticket, traffic ticket or DUI than before should you choose to violate Georgia traffic laws.
