Be very careful on the roads of Fulton County GA this holiday season. Fulton County officers ( including the cities of Atlanta, Roswell, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, College Park, etc. ) crack down during late December in terms of traffic patrol. Specifically, they are looking for DUI drivers. While no one can be pulled over for DUI - the Fulton DUI officer needs to stop you for something like failing to maintain your lane, speeding, or a red light violation - we all know the officers are looking for DUI drivers this time of year especially. With people coming home from Christmas parties and resturants as well as the typical New Years Eve parties, Fulton law enforcement officers are not giving people the benefit of the doubt when it comes to DUI. So be very careful out there and my advice is to not drink a drop if you are planning to drive. That also goes for medicines. Do not take cold medicine or even prescription pain killers or sleep aids if you are planning to drive at all during these holiday times. In addition to DUI for drinking alcohol, Fulton County officers stop and arrest drivers for driving under the influence of prescription and over the counter drugs. If the Fulton DUI officer does not like your driving, and they request a blood test, and that blood test shows some type of medication, well, that can mean trouble and a Fulton County DUI prosecutor wanting to convict you for DUI. This conviction stays on your record forever and can lead you to lose your GA drivers license and even do additional jail time.
