Warning: Don't drive impaired

Operation Zero Tolerance is in full swing so don't even think about driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Georgia State Troopers along with officers from the Georgia Department of Public Safety's Motor Vehicle Carrier Compliance and Capitol Police divisions have teamed up with officers from local police and sheriff's departments across Georgia for OZT.

The campaign began Friday, June 20 and ends Sunday, July 6.

Law enforcement across the state will be stepping up their patrols and cracking down on motorists who are found to be unfit to drive.

"State Troopers and DPS officers will not hesitate to arrest an impaired driver and tow their vehicle," said Col. Bill Hitchens, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Safety. "No matter what you drive — a passenger car, pickup truck, motorcycle, or commercial vehicle — if you are caught driving impaired, you will be arrested."
