Here's some tips on how to avoid Thanksgiving traffic

These Are The Worst Possible Times to Travel for Thanksgiving 2017

The Thanksgiving holiday travel period is defined as Wednesday to Sunday.

If you'll be traveling by airplane this holiday, the Syracuse Hancock International Airport is advising passengers to arrive at least two hours prior to their scheduled depart time due to newly added TSA screening procedures and an increase in passenger volume. The lightest flight travel day will be on Thanksgiving Day. Get the kids involved in helping you tape off their "no-go zone", then find kid-friendly ways they can help in the kitchen. It makes sense, as younger family members will be flocking to the houses of long-established Thanksgiving hosts-parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and the like.

If you can avoid Los Angeles' freeways Tuesday afternoon, be thankful. People either feel as though they have more money in their pockets and they're OK with getting away.

"I think the traffic's been pretty tight", driver Carolyn Whitaker said.

AAA said drivers will pay the highest Thanksgiving gas prices since 2014.

First, of course, I'll throw in one of my own: don't talk about politics. "Last Thanksgiving, we saw upwards of 750,000 passengers coming through the doors nationwide", said AMTRAK Spokesperson Beth Toll.

Extra patrols will be on the roads, looking for drunk drivers, while you should always plan a sober ride. The best practice would be to check ahead.

Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year. In terms of digital access to Wi-Fi networks, the US ranks with Thailand as having the world's most accessible airports. The company is also poised to grow earnings by 15.5% in 2018.

Nearly 51 million Americans are expected to take a trip for Thanksgiving, by air, roads, and rails. Flights will be full, but fewer flights will be offered than in July and August - the airport's busiest travel times. DUI enforcement and click it or ticket are in effect.

Gas costs about 32 cents more per gallon this year in North Carolina and about 44 cents more per gallon in South Carolina. As the bulk of the travel is expected to be via road, rental car giant Avis Budget is poised to be among the biggest gainers.

These numbers include everyone driving, flying, taking a bus, train or boat. By doing so, you're not only creating a more pleasant environment, you're also helping protect your health by managing your stress.
