Heavy Travel This Week

Heavy Travel This Week

If you plan to travel over this Thanksgiving holiday week, you’ll find plenty of company on the highways, at airports, aboard trains and even on long-distance buses.  AAA of Northern California, which releases annual holiday travel projections, says more Californians will be traveling more than 50 miles from home this Thanksgiving holiday than in the past nine years.  That’s a 3.1 percent increase over last year.  Cynthia Harris, a spokeswoman for the association, says Thanksgiving travel has been slowly but steadily on the rise since bottoming out in 2007.  Based on AAA bookings, the most popular Thanksgiving destinations are Las Vegas, Nevada, San Francisco, California and San Diego.  While the airports will be bustling, most of the 5 million Californians leaving home for Thanksgiving will drive to their destinations, according to the AAA survey, a 3.4 percent increase over last year. California Highway Patrol will have extra officers on the highways, and as usual, advise drivers to wear seat belts, not to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol or when sleepy, and to avoid speeding.
