According to the Georgia State Patrol, there were a number of car accidents over the Labor Day Holiday weekend that result in 14 deaths state wide from 6 p.m. Friday night until late Monday night. State authorities claim that there were a total of 225 drivers who were arrested for driving under the influence during that weekend window. Sadly, there were 443 total traffic accidents this weekend, resulting in the injury of 226 people total, 14 of which lost their life.
Sadly, every year there are far too many deaths that are caused by negligent drivers who get behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. And while they may believe at the time they can control a moving vehicle, they soon find out that they have placed their own life at risk along with the lives of others.
