AAA Expects Heavy Holiday Road Traffic

Associated Press reports, “The Thanksgiving travel rush was back on this year, as people caught planes in numbers not seen in years, setting aside inflation concerns to reunite with loved ones and enjoy some normalcy after two holiday seasons marked by COVID-19 restrictions. Changing habits around work and play, however, might spread out the crowds and reduce the usual amount of holiday travel stress. Experts say many people will start holiday trips early or return home later than normal because they will spend a few days working remotely — or at least tell the boss they’re working remotely.” AAA is projecting that 54.6 million Americans will venture at least 50 miles from home over this year’s holiday, 49 million of them by car.
