LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

Drivers in Lowndes County appear to be listening to warnings to stay off the roads.

The sheriff's office did not see a spike in traffic crashes over the last 24 hours. Officials say most people kept their driving to a minimum. 

"The decreased traffic has helped tremendously," explained Lt. Stryde Jones, with the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office.

"A lot of people heeded the warnings that were sent out yesterday and stayed home. And, of course, with the closure of the schools, that has helped and decreased a lot of traffic as well," Jones continued.

With more freezing temperatures... Lowndes County officials urge drivers to continue to be cautious... but they don't expect major problems on the roads.
