Ashburn --  Georgia's roads were filled with travelers Wednesday, headed back home from Christmas visits.  

Traffic wasn't too bad, but there were noticeably more cars on Interstate 75 headed both north and south.

Terry Mohn, traveling from Tampa to North Georgia, stopped at a rest stop in Turner County, and said things were going pretty smoothly.   "It's not too bad. People are being pretty considerate for the most part. Some are a little more aggressive than a 60 year old man is like me," Mohn said.  

The official Christmas holiday travel period ended at midnight. Sadly, we exceeded the state patrol's predictions for the number of people killed on Georgia highways during Christmas.

Troopers had predicted 13 people who lose their lives. Seventeen were killed between Friday night and midnight Monday.

The State Patrol is predicting 16 people will be killed during the upcoming New Year's weekend. The New Year's holiday period begins at 6PM Friday and ends at midnight Monday, January 1.
