As a Cherokee County resident I would like to offer some suggestions for future rules for citizens of Georgia.

If there is a forecast of snow:

a. Every driver must have snow chains and 50 pounds of kitty litter in car or a $1,000 fine.

b. If one snowflake is predicted, no school and every parent should stay home and not work, or pay a minimum of $20 an hour for child care.

c. In bad weather all left lanes of four or more shall be for emergency vehicles only or a $1,000 fine.

d. If anyone feels that Georgia is not prepared for winter storms (which happens once every five years for four days at most,) we as taxpayers should come up with funding to provide adequate equipment throughout the state, $4 to $5 billion dollars would be a good start.

e. Use your head. No one put a gun to you and made you get out in it. Everyone was wrong. Stop blaming others, no one is perfect.
