Lowndes County - Georgia highways are crowded as many holiday travelers head home.

State Troopers say Sunday will be the busiest travel day of the year. So far, there have been about 1,200 wrecks and three fatalities in Georgia.

Troopers warn motorists to slow down and buckle up, or you'll get a ticket. "We're targeting reckless drivers, speeders, enforcing DUI laws out here, we want to make sure that everybody gets home safely and we urge everyone to slow down, take your time and get to your destination safely," said Trooper Joshua Brogdon.

State troopers predict about 3,400 wrecks with 20 fatalities this holiday travel period. It ends at midnight on Sunday.
