AAA estimates that 48.7 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more for their Thanksgiving celebrations this year. The 2016 Thanksgiving travel forecast represents a 1.9% increase from last year and could make November 23rd – November 27th the busiest, travel-wise, since 2007. If you plan on taking to the road during this time, please be sure to exercise caution by:
- Avoiding all form of distraction
- Refraining from alcohol consumption
- Giving yourself extra time to get to your location
89% of this year’s Thanksgiving traffic will be vehicular. AAA estimates 43.5 million Americans will use a personal vehicle exclusively to get to their destinations. With this increase in traffic comes an increased risk for serious or fatal injury, making the care you take while driving all the more important.
