The heat is back on to get you to cool it when it comes to the gas pedal.
Police and sheriff deputies around the state relaunched their summer heat program Monday.
They will crack down on speeders and drunk drivers, as well as seat belt violators.
"Throughout the year, speed, drunk driving and unbuckled motorists and passengers are the top three causes of fatal crashes in Georgia," said Director Harris Blackwood. "That's exactly why we launch Summer HEAT…to save lives. It's not about ticket quotas and it's not about revenue. When more people are on the road during the summer months, we want them to get to and from their vacations safely."
The "100 Days of HEAT" campaign, which began Monday, has been in Georgia since 2004. The campaign will continue through Sept. 2.
It coincides with the annual May kickoff of the Click It Or Ticket safety belt initiative, which also began Monday, ends June 2.
