July 4, 2007

Albany-  The travel period for the Fourth of July isn't long, only 30-hours, but already Georgia highways have seen half the deaths predicted. 

The Department of Public Safety predicted more than 1,015 and 397 injuries along with six deaths for the travel period that ends in less than 6 hours.  So far, there have been 373 crashes, 62 injuries, and three fatalities in Coweta, Fayette, and DeKalb Counties. 

In southwest Georgia, we've had only 11 crashes, one injury, and no fatalities. The Georgia State Patrol reminds motorists to buckle up, obey the speed limit, to designate a driver if you plan to drink.
