ATLANTA -- While most of the ice and snow should melt by Friday afternoon, dangers will still remain for drivers.

Many reflectors were ripped from the pavement by snow plows in the past few days. They'll have to be replaced by the Georgia Department of Transportation at a cost of $7.50 each.

Gravel tossed on roads to give vehicles traction will continue to be kicked up into your car's finish - or windshield. They could cause chips in glass or -even worse - cracks.

It's not bad news for everyone. LeBron Blanton of Superb Windshield Repair is prepping for a windfall of business. He knows it's coming because he had his best week of business in 10 years two weeks ago after SnowJam 2014.

"The problem is that they eventually get larger. They get worse at some point," Blanton said. "The best thing to do is get them fixed now while you still can."
