If Atlanta mayor, the Governor, and Johns Creek would actually do the 6 P rule ( Proper Planning Prevent P@%$ Poor Performance) we wouldn't have this mess with the roads and accidents. They knew this storm was coming and yet did nothing to prepare for it. What is this? Didn't they want to spend some money to keep us all safe?
