A county Sheriff’s department from the deep south has had its fill of folks out on the road getting their cars and trucks all-tore-up. They’ve taken to Facebook to put the word out that driving in the snow isn’t worth it. This recent onslaught of winter weather has the region shut down, or it should, except people don’t listen and insist on driving.
The messages are coming out of the Oconee County Sheriff’s Department, east of Atlanta. While the winter weather wouldn’t be considered extreme in many parts of the country, Georgians are not known for their winter driving skills. A light dusting of snow is enough to shut down schools. Ice can cripple the region. Even a mild threat of snow is enough to spark a run on the grocery stores, where gallons of milk and loaves of bread fly off the shelves.
So the Oconee County Sheriff’s Department took the proactive step of warning locals to stay home.
“Priceless!! This sheriff deserves a FROZEN award! LOL This is great. Ya’ll up there need to listen to him/her… seriously. Ya crash your ride you have no ride.. :p Carry on Sheriff!!!,” one reader commented on TRIBUNIST’s website.
“I love this sheriff department!!! Need more of them!!” another commented.
