More Americans are Hitting the Highways for Thanksgiving Turkey
Be careful on the roads this holiday season ladies and gentlemen.
More Americans are expected to head out on the highway this Thanksgiving.
AAA president Bob Darbelnet says 42 million will be traveling to visit family and friends over the holiday.
That’s up more than 11 percent from last year. The rebound follows a two-year slowdown during the recession.
Darbelnet says 94 percent of holiday travelers will go by car, 4 percent by air and the remaining 2 percent by rail, bus or boat.
The travel club’s outlook indicates they’ll travel an average of 800 miles and spend about $500 — same as last year.
