Police on lookout for traffic violators

THOMASVILLE —  With holidays about to go into full swing, police expect an increase in motorists on city streets.

Police will be on the lookout for impaired drivers, speeders, seatbelt and child restraint violations.

“We will be monitoring our high-traffic intersections, as well our busy business areas of the city,” said Lt. Eric Hampton, Thomasville Police Department public information officer.

Motorists are reminded that if they are going to drink, not to drive.

“As always, we remind citizens to buckle their seat belts and make sure children are restrained when vehicles are in motion,” Hampton said.

Citizens are encouraged to report violations to police.

“This could get a dangerous driver off the road and possibly save a life,” the officer said.

Pointing out that schools will be out during holiday periods, Hampton said motorists should slow down and be aware of children out on streets and moving about in neighborhoods.
