'Zero Tolerance' for drinking and driving over holidays


THOMASVILLE — Operation Zero Tolerance means you never receive just a warning or citation.  Impaired motorists caught driving at or over the 0.08 (BAC) limit will be arrested. 

The good news is there are a few simple tips to get home safely if you plan to drink this holiday season:

Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin;

Before drinking, designate a sober driver;

If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend/family member or public transportation.

Operation Zero Tolerance will run fromFriday through Jan.1   The Thomasville Police Department feels that it’s not about writing more tickets…it’s about saving lives.   Remember to “Buckle-Up. Hang-Up. Slow Down and Drive Sober.”
