Traveling for the holidays is something every family does, especially over thanksgiving. If you or a loved one of yours is traveling this holiday, make sure you are staying safe on the roads. According to AAA, 49.3 million people will be on the roads traveling to far off destinations to engage in home-cooked feasts.
Our nation continues to grow as we begin to expand our traveling efforts. The air travel business has grown again this past year and airlines expect to see even more fliers over Thanksgiving. However, this is only one pillar in the increasing overall trend of traveling in late November.
What Is Causing This?
Overall, 2019 has hit a record low for the past few years in fuel prices. This allows more people the freedom to take off on their family-oriented adventures. With fuel prices being low in cars, planes have also seen a dip in their fuel prices allowing more budget-conscious individuals to fly.
Warm weather also entices many travelers. Every year, people around the country desire to escape the beginning of winter. Thanksgiving gives them the perfect opportunity. Flying to and from theme parks in the southern regions of California and Florida, bypassing the traditions of an at-home feast.
How to Beat The Trend and Stay Safe:
Developing your plans around the holiday in regards to traveling can be difficult. It’s best to have your celebration of the holiday at a place where the least amount of people have to travel. Limiting the exposure to the traveling chaos is key.
Also, beat the traffic by traveling early. Leave before everyone else does, and return after everyone else has returned. Scheduling is everything in avoiding rushes and chaos. Giving yourself plenty of time to get to and from your destination will help tremendously not only for yourself but for everyone around you.
Don’t drink and drive. We say this every year. However, some people still do it. If you are driving sober, watch out for anyone that might be impaired on the road.
Keep your cell-phone put away. Everyone sees it far too often. Someone driving with their head down in traffic texting, snap chatting, or posting to social media. This is one of the most dangerous trends that has come about in the 21st century. It only becomes amplified over the Thanksgiving holiday.
