Traffic.com Helps Drivers Avoid Thanksgiving Weekend Traffic

                              More than 31 million people are expected to travel by car during the holiday weekend

Chicago – November 18, 2008 – Traffic.com, a NAVTEQ brand and a leading source of traffic solutions, provides holiday traffic information for drivers on the go this Thanksgiving weekend.

AAA reports that over 31 million people traveled by car over the 2007 Thanksgiving weekend, with more expected this year. While the holidays are a great time to see friends and family, they can be a challenging time to drive. Five of the ten travel days of the year with the most accidents are right around Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. Traffic.com offers driving tips for the holiday season:

  • Get a good night’s sleep before your trip (at least 8 hours).
  • Drive long trips with a passenger who stays awake to talk to the driver.
  • Schedule regular stops, every 100 miles or two hours.
  • Avoid alcohol and medications that may impair performance.
  • If you are feeling drowsy, pull off into a safe area and take a brief nap.
  • Walk around or do a few exercises to get rid of grogginess.
  • Rely on Traffic.com for the most up-to-date traffic information
Traffic.com, the #1 U.S. traffic-only website for online and mobile traffic information,* helps drivers plan routes, both before they leave home and on the go.
