(ATLANTA) The Georgia Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) announced the release of a new cell phone app that will locate a sober ride for New Year’s Eve Revelers. Operation Zero Tolerance (OZT) will be in full effect from Dec. 16, 2011, to Jan. 2, 2012. Local Police Officers, Sheriff’s Deputies, and State Troopers will be participating in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign. GOHS has some recommendations for the Holiday:
- Plan a sober ride home before the party;
- Designate a non-drinking driver and leave your car at home;
- For females, if you have had more than one drink, and mo or two drinks for a male get a Taxi, call a non-drinking friend or ride MARTA !);
- Download the Sober Ride App.
Georgia DUI Lawyer George Creal has some recommendations too – Don’t Drive Drunk but if you do – Don’t Talk, Politely Refuse Field Tests, and Don’t Blow Breath or Don’t Give Blood if you want to beat your DUI charges. If you refuse the breath or blood test, you can lose your license for up to one year but it happens in less than 5% of cases that hire a qualified DUI Lawyer.
Zero Tolerance means you are going to Jail anyway!
