State Troopers Cut Back On Fuel

Georgia State Patrol troopers say they have been asked to cut back by 25 percent.

They say this is a proactive decision made by the Georgia Department of Public Safety in an effort to save fuel and cut costs.

But troopers say motorists should not notice a difference because they will still be on the roadways just not on rolling patrol as often.

"We will be focusing our concentration primarily on conducting road checks..we want to remind drivers to have proper documentation, we want to make sure vehicles are fit to be out on the road," said Sgt. Ronald Warren of the Georgia State Patrol.

Troopers say they will be conducting more license checks, sobriety checks and operating the radar more often.
