Thanksgiving 2012 Road Traffic Volumes

Each year, AAA provides interesting projections for holiday travel.  For Thanksgiving 2012, AAA estimates that 43.6 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home for the holiday weekend.  Importantly, ninety percent of those travelers (39.1 million) will make their journey by automobile. That’s a lot of traffic.

What is not included is the projected number of speeders…wouldn’t that be an interesting stat! While we don’t know those figures, we do know that the onset of the holiday season brings added distractions. For drivers, those distractions can be the source of speeding, and speeding kills.   Remember to be vigilant and follow the speed limits this holiday season.  

Happy Thanksgiving!
