GDOT: Turn off automatic sprinklers during freezing temps

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Georgia Department of Transportation has a warning for home and business owners with automatic sprinkler systems.

They want to prevent road hazards this winter.

GDOT reminds drivers to be on the lookout for icy patches or black ice on the road, especially early in the morning following sub-freezing temperatures.
