Thanksgiving Travel

Posted:

Waterll (KWWL) - The busiest travel time of the year will be a little less busy this year.

Officials with AAA say traffic will be down 1.2% this Thanksgiving.  That means 400,000 fewer drivers on American roadways.

Gas at the Evansdale truck stop is just $1.51, but if AAA is correct, this maybe the first decline in Thanksgiving travel since 2002. Officials with AAA blame the overall state of the economy, and the challenges it has created.

Police are stepping up traffic enforcement. Looking for seat belt violations, people speeding, and drunken drivers.

The Thanksgiving rush is not over yet. Sunday is actually the busiest travel day of the year.
