Wednesday night, over 150 law enforcement personnel from three different states met in Rabun County for “Hands Across the Border,” a campaign to help prevent drunk driving in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and Florida.

Representatives from State Highway Patrol offices in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina spoke, letting everyone know that their states are committed to cracking down on drunk drivers, both throughout the Labor Day Holiday Weekend and all year round.

A sobriety checkpoint was scheduled to take place last night at the Georgia/North Carolina line, but it had to be called off due to inclement weather.

Today wraps up five days of sobriety checkpoints throughout the Southeast as part of Hands Across the Border.
