Ga. offering smartphone app to cut drunk driving

Ga. offering smartphone app to cut drunk driving

ATLANTA -- State officials say they've developed a new smartphone application designed to cut down on drunken driving during upcoming New Year's Eve celebrations.

The Governor's Office of Highway Safety announced that a list of free sober ride programs is available in an app called Drive Sober Georgia.

Georgia Office of Highway Safety director Harris Blackwood said authorities sought to make it as easy as possible to get a ride, so the application was developed after consulting with its partners who deal with road safety.

Drive Sober Georgia is available for free download on the iPhone and Android markets. The information can be viewed at www.drivesobergeorgia.com.

Sunday alcohol sales gain traction around Ga.

GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- Sunday alcohol sales continue to spread in communities across Georgia after lawmakers legalized them this year.

Sales started Sunday in Gainesville, where some patrons lined up outside Sammy's Package Store before 12:30 p.m., the earliest that sales can start by law.

Gainesville resident Danny Standridge said he is glad that Sunday sales were legalized. He said he thinks people will buy alcohol on Sundays even if stores do not sell it.

Dacula also started Sunday sales this week.

Oakwood's City Council is scheduled to meet Monday evening to consider an ordinance that would allow the start of Sunday sales in that city.
