Halloween costume idea: Designated driver

The Atlanta Police Department is planning a Halloween "traffic safety blitz," complete with "saturation patrols" and "security checkpoints" that will start this weekend.

According to an APD press release:

More than half of all Halloween fatal accidents are alcohol related. Accordingly, Metro Atlanta law enforcement officers will be turning up the HEAT Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic on impaired drivers through increased patrols and safety checkpoints.
