Rome Police Department Will Crack Down on Impaired Driving as Part of Operation Zero Tolerance
ROME, GEORGIA – According to an online news article published by coosavalleynews.com, the Rome Police Department will be setting up checkpoints as part of Georgia’s Operation Zero Tolerance to catch impaired drivers and hold them accountable.*
Between June 21, 2019, and July 4, 2019, the Rome Police Department will be looking for impaired drivers as part of Georgia’s Operation Zero Tolerance. With multiple sobriety checkpoints, drivers who exhibit signs of intoxication will be evaluated. Any drivers who are proven to have been driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be arrested.
Georgia’s Operation Zero Tolerance is part of a national campaign to crack down on impaired driving, which is linked to serious and deadly accidents. On average, approximately 500 people involved in DUI-related accidents sustain fatal injuries each year. Another 258,000 people suffer injuries associated with DUI-related accidents. This large number of people averages out to approximately one person every two minutes.
Unfortunately, the statistics have not improved in recent years. As such, Georgia, along with other states, are making an effort to curb impaired driving to prevent needless injuries and deaths. The consequences of one mistake can change a person’s life forever, whether that person is the impaired driver involved in an accident, or the person is a victim of a DUI accident.
Many automobile accident injuries are permanent and require life-long care. Additionally, impaired drivers can expect to face not only criminal penalties but also lawsuits pursued by injured victims or surviving family members of deceased loved ones. Such consequences have not been sufficient to prevent impaired individuals from getting behind the wheel. The Rome Police Department, along with the state of Georgia, are hopeful that Operation Zero Tolerance will send a necessary message to all drivers.
