Starting December 17, increased patrols will begin monitoring roadways for the statewide Operation Zero Tolerance campaign.

Anyone stopped with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher, will be transported to the nearest jail and issued a DUI.

Officers warn that more tickets will be issued at this time.

Their goal is to save lives during what they call the "most dangerous time to be traveling."

"We've increased our patrols," said Sgt. Alex Adair, with the traffic unit of the Valdosta Police Department. "We're moving more toward the night time hours, when those parties and those celebrations might be occurring. We're also extra efforts-- For example, New Year's Eve we'll all be out working."

Increased city, county and state patrols will be monitoring roadways and checkpoints through January 2.
