SUMTER CO., GA (WALB) -

Sumter County officials say the heavy rains this month is causing big problems for the dirt roads in their area.

They're seeing more cases of Mud-Bogging throughout the county.

As the rains subside this week, Administrator Bill Twomey wants to remind drivers that damage from the activity is costly.

"Be cognizant of the law," said Twomey. "You need to realize you can be fined. Do the right thing. It's not the right thing to endanger your friends and neighbors."

There has already been thousands of dollars in damage from mud-bogging this year.

Twomey says they already have leads on a few people that may be responsible. Police are following up with an investigation.
