Georgia State Patrol Reports After Labor Day Weekend 2018

Posted by Richard Lawson | Sep 04, 2018 | 0 Comments

The Georgia State Patrol has reported the roadway statistics in Georgia after the three day time period over Labor Day Weekend this year.

According to reports:

  • 18 Fatal Crashes
  • 446 Total Crashes 
  • 332 DUI Arrests
  • 8,193 Traffic Citations
  • 11,420 Warnings

The number of arrests for DUI in Georgia has increased by nearly 100 arrests, and the fatal crashes from the holiday weekend have almost doubled from last year's Labor Day Weekend reports.

The City of Atlanta reported that close to 1,000,000 people traveled to the metro Atlanta area for the holiday weekend. With that number of drivers and vehicles on our roadways, the potential for accidents and DUI investigations greatly increases.
