      It's spring break season, and that means spring beak travel.

      Officers with the Georgia State Patrol say drivers of all ages will be hitting the road for a week of fun.

      They're reminding you to be careful and make the right decisions.

      SFC Shawn Urquhart with GSP says, "this time of the year, it's a lot of controlled burns, and smoke and depending on the weather and instead of evaporating up in the air it might stay low and fog. So these are some of the things you need to pay attention to as you're driving."

      She also urges drives to not text and drive and limit the time you spend on the phone.
