Even though the Fourth of July has already passed, many people will continue to celebrate the holiday all weekend long. However, the Georgia State Patrol wants citizens to know that they will continue their concentrated highway patrols all through Sunday.

Colonel Mark W. McDonough, commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Safety, said that troopers and other law enforcement officials will be in highly visible locations, including areas on secondary roads.

“Past experiences have shown that a high visibility of law enforcement officers increases safe driving habits, and that translates to lives saved,” he said.

The GSP reminds all drivers to buckle up, be courteous to other motorists, and to use a designated driver if needed.
