Stay Safe on the Road This Thanksgiving

The Thanksgiving holiday is typically one of the busiest travel periods of the year. The Georgia Department of Public Safety defines the Thanksgiving holiday as the 102-hour period that begins at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 21st and ends at midnight on Sunday, November 25th.

This Thanksgiving holiday, state troopers will be in full force conducting patrols and road checks throughout the state of Georgia. Georgia State Troopers will be strictly enforcing seat belt laws and watching for impaired drivers.

In addition to investigating traffic crashes, the Georgia State Patrol issues warnings and citations, and typically makes numerous arrests for driving under the influence. We encourage all drivers to use extra caution this holiday weekend, and celebrate law enforcement’s efforts to keep our roads a safer place.
