Peachtree City UPDATES
Week of December 27, 2017


Have a Safe & Happy New Year!

 

HOT ISSUES


Designate a Driver for New Year’s Celebrations

The Peachtree City Police Department will be participating in the National Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign through January 2. They will be increasing enforcement in this area, including road checks. 


According to NHTSA, 37,461 people were killed in traffic accidents in 2016, and 28 percent of those fatalities involved a driver with a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit of .08 (the limit in all 50 states). Over the last two years in Peachtree City, the rate of collisions involving a DUI has more than doubled over previous years. Of the two fatality collisions in Peachtree City in 2017, both at fault drivers were impaired. 


Please help out by designating a sober driver, taking the keys from someone who is impaired, and calling 911 if you suspect someone is driving impaired.
