Valdosta - So far, two people have died on Georgia roads during the holiday travel period. Georgia State Patrols are predicting 2,843 accidents with 740 injuries and 17 fatalities.

Troopers at the Valdosta Post haven't worked any serious accidents yet, but have been busy looking for impaired drivers. They set up road blocks in Lowndes and Lanier counties Wednesday night, and charged several people with driving under the influence and open container.

Corporal Brian Gay says the road blocks won't stop when New Years ends. "The road blocks will go on throughout the weekend and throughout the holiday period," said Gay. "As you know we had two fatalities over Christmas here in Lowndes County that were alcohol related so we're going to really vigorously enforce dui laws and we're going to be out in full force to prevent any further fatalities."'

The holiday travel period started at 6:00 Wednesday night and ends at midnight on Sunday.
