AAA projects busiest holiday travel season on record

AAA projects busiest holiday travel season on record

Those traveling by car are doing so despite facing the highest year-end gas prices in three years, AAA said.

Wednesday and Thursday afternoon were expected to see the most crowded roads for this holiday season.

AAA's Tipsy Tow service will be offered on both Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.

A strong economy and labor market are to thank for increased income and consumer confidence, she said. Compared to 2016, this year will see an estimated 3.1 percent increase in travel. Over the next week, Tow to Go will reach a significant milestone by having removed more than 25,000 impaired drivers from roads across the Southeast and Midwest.

· Buckle up on every trip and in every seating position. It's recommended travelers have someone drop them off, or take a cab, Uber or Lyft to the airport.

Be Tolerant and Forgiving!

"Just be careful", Alves said. Assume that it is not personal.

Do Not Respond! Avoid eye contact, don't make gestures, maintain space around your vehicle and contact 9-1-1 if needed. Unfortunately the best laid plans are sometimes interrupted by storms, illness and emergencies. AAA also sells tags and pompoms.

Whether you're flying or driving, patience is an essential tool to carry with you when traveling this time of year. Get out your boarding pass and ID.

In the Philadelphia area, more than 1.2 million people are leaving town.

Pack a safety kit!

"We have city staff ready to treat pavement surfaces if needed", Parks said.

"We made the top 10 list of things we don't want to be on", AAA spokeswoman Susan Hiltz said.

Many folks in the Lowcountry started their holiday travels Thursday afternoon.

Tip #1: Get to the airport early. Print your boarding pass at home or download on your smartphone to avoid extra lines you could otherwise avoid.

"You got to expect that during Christmas time". This year has proven to be a better year when it comes to fatal wrecks. Be sure to download the AAA Mobile App. The London-based business information provider teamed with AAA in 2009 to jointly analyze travel trends during major holidays.

Just like any other time of year, if the drink has an alcohol content of 24 to 70 percent, they need to be in their original, unopened packaging and be under 5 liters.
