Lowndes County - Traffic seems back to normal on Interstate 75 after a deadly holiday travel period.

Just as state troopers predicted, 21 people died on Georgia roads between Wednesday afternoon and last night. There were 3,166 accidents resulting in 808 injuries. Troopers say they issued a large number of speeding and seat belt tickets.

"Most of the time people traveling trying to get to a destination drive faster and more reckless, but if they'd just allow a little extra time for dealing with holiday traffic it would make things a lot easier," said Cpl. John K. Luke.

The Department of Transportation has resumed construction after suspending all lane closures during the holiday travel period.
