The holidays are finally here.
While Thanksgiving and Christmas are both great times to enjoy good food, family, and friends, for most of us it also means holiday traveling.
Whether you are going by way of plane, train or automobile, this year you can expect a higher-than-normal volume of holiday travelers accompanying you.
We have compiled some road safety tips to help you deal with the holiday traffic surge.
Before Thanksgiving, AAA predicted that nearly 54.3 million Americans would be traveling in excess of 50+ miles from home during the Thanksgiving holiday, the highest volume of long distant holiday travelers since 2005. That statistic proved to be correct.
City travel was also expected to take up to three times longer than normal, with cities expected to have some of the largest surges in traveling volume.
Roadways were expected to see the highest volume from this holiday surge; 89% of all travelers (45.5 million) were planning to travel by car on Thanksgiving.
As we near Christmas, there is no question that travel volume will continue to increase.
If you are traveling on the road, have no fear.
With the right plan in place, even the least experienced traveler can avoid the hassles of holiday traffic.
Here are some road safety tips for making your holiday travels safe and successful.
