100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T.

If you’re planning on taking a road trip this holiday weekend, don’t forget that we’re now in the 100 Days of Summer H.E.A.T., or “Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic.” This means that cops all over Georgia will gleefully pull you to the side of the highway for speeding, aggressive driving, not wearing a seatbelt, or otherwise doing something you’re not supposed to be doing in your vehicle.

It’s also worth nothing that the July 4th holiday will be an extended weekend this year, covering 102 hours if you count from 6 p.m. on Friday through midnight on Tuesday. Last year the holiday weekend covered only 78 hours. The Georgia State Patrol is predicting more than 2,000 crashes and 24 fatalities. So here’s a gentle reminder to donate blood at one of the area blood drives if you’re eligible.

    Be safe this weekend. I just talked with my sis who was on her way to Savannah. She said I-16 is crawling with GSPs.

    Ha! Traffic enforcement in GA? That’s pretty funny. I’m not complaining about lack of enforcement, by the way.
