Valdosta - Many Georgia motorists are heading back from their holiday destinations, and state troopers are out on the highways looking for traffic violators.

Troopers were out in full force along I-75 in Lowndes County Monday, and issued dozens of tickets for speeding. They're also looking for drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and people driving without a license or insurance.

So far, there have been about 1,500 accidents on Georgia roads with seven fatalities, including a 20-year-old Moultrie man who was killed in a head on collision Friday night.

Troopers urge motorists to slow down and watch out for other careless drivers to keep the number of deaths from climbing any higher. "Just buckle up and watch out for impaired drivers as much as you can. If you see somebody, do not hesitate to dial 911 or star GSP and report these drivers, and we'll get somebody out there to stop them," said Trooper First Class J.W. Kinsey.

The Highway patrol predicted 14 people will die on Georgia roads over the holiday travel period, which ends at midnight Monday.
