Lowndes County - The Georgia State Patrol predicts that 13 people will die on Georgia roads this holiday weekend. So far, seven people have been killed, but no fatal accidents have occured here in South Georgia.

Traffic on Interstate 75 in Lowndes County was heavy Friday afternoon, and troopers say it should get even more crowded as the weekend progresses. They're out looking for speeders, drunk drivers, and people not wearing their seatbelts, and they're not giving warnings.

"There will be no warnings this weekend, there are no excuses for some of the driving we're seeing out there right now," said Trooper First Class William Cope.

Troopers expect Sunday to be the busiest travel day of the holiday period, which ends at midnight on Sunday.
