The highways will be more crowded than ever, largely because airlines have raised prices and cut the number of seats available. For the holidays 1 in 4 Americans will be driving long distances, which means plenty of traffic jams and crowded highways.
A total of 93.3 million Americans will be hitting the road, which is 1.6 percent higher than last year. Plus, around 84 million people will drive at least 50 miles between December 22nd and January 1st, which is a new holiday record.
AAA also recommends keeping an emergency kit in your car, in case you run into trouble this holiday season.
