Albany -- The Fourth of July is one of the deadliest holiday weekends on Georgia roads. The July Fourth holiday period started at 6 O-clock Thursday, and ends at midnight Sunday.

 The State patrol is predicting 19 people will die on Georgia roads. Georgia State Patrol Trooper Darryl Benton said "We're asking everyone to be careful. Plan their vacations ahead of time. If they are running late, don't speed up to make up for time. Follow all the rules and regulations of the highway, and take their time getting to and from their destinations and locations."

Triple-A predicts there will be more travelers than any 4th of July in the last nine years.

Construction on Georgia interstates has been suspended to help with the increased traffic expected.
