HEAT is a multi-jurisdictional task force specifically designed to combat aggressive traffic across the state. Its goals are to reduce the number of impaired driving crashes in Georgia by 10 percent and to enforce laws targeting aggressive driving around Georgia.
It is designed to educate the public and enforce laws related to impaired and aggressive driving. Each officer is armed with materials to educate Georgia residents about state laws that regulate aggressive and impaired driving. Education and enforcement must go hand-in-hand for the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and its statewide partners to be successful in reducing the number of crashes, fatalities and injuries on our highways.
