Georgia Motorists Retrieve Abandoned Cars
Thousands of vehicles left on roadways due to freak snowstorm
Atlanta officials are taking advantage of warmer weather by offering to take drivers back to their abandoned vehicles. Thousands of cars were left on roads and in ditches Tuesday when 2.6 inches of snow caused gridlock and chaos around the city.
Officials are funneling drivers to two locations where shuttles will take them back to their cars, according to CNN. Emergency workers are also offering five gallons of gas and a jumpstart if needed.
More than 2,000 vehicles were abandoned around the Atlanta area as commutes stretched into hours-long marathons. North Carolina and Alabama saw similar conditions, with hundreds of motorists walking away from cars, unable to cope with the slick conditions. At least 10 people died as a result of the storm.
