The Savannah DUI GSP Nighthawks have made 366 DUI arrests this year.  The GSP was awarded a 1 Million Dollar HEAT grant by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to patrol DUIs in Bulloch and Chatham Counties but the focus has been in Savannah where there are lots of unwitting tourists and art students with fat wallets to pay the big DUI fines.
