AAA: Thanksgiving travel expected to surpass last year’s numbers

The American Automobile Association is predicting another busy holiday weekend with more than 55 million Americans expected to travel over Thanksgiving.

Matthew Conde with Triple-A Idaho says another uptick in the number of people heading out for a major holiday continues the post-recession trend seen in recent years.


Triple-A expects to rescue more than 600 stranded travelers over the holiday weekend due to break downs and flat tires.

Motorists are encouraged to have their vehicles inspected by a trusted mechanic prior to traveling for Thanksgiving to avoid potentially costly repairs, and always travel with an emergency kit to be safe.  (AAA-Idaho)
