ATLANTA — The Georgia Department of Public Safety announced a monthlong enforcement effort targeted at impaired drivers on Georgia roads. Col. Bill Hitchens, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Safety, said Georgia State troopers and officers with the Motor Carrier Compliance Division are concentrating on intercepting impaired drivers on the roads before they can cause a traffic crash.
Hitchens said December is “Drunk and Drugged Driver Awareness Month” as holiday parties can increase the number of impaired drivers on the state’s roads.  “Impaired driving is not confined to summer nights, but rather a danger around the clock, 365 days a year,” he said.
