Thanksgiving is only a few days away, bringing with it turkey, stuffing, congested roadways and the official start to the 2012 Holiday Shopping Season.
The holiday is often the most traveled during the year, as families drive to homes throughout the country to reunite with their families. 90% of those on the road, according to AAA, will be headed somewhere to join families and friends for a Thanksgiving feast.
The U.S. Department of Transportation has noted police officers will be out in full force to keep roadways moving and checking vehicles for seatbelted passengers, drunk drivers and other assorted problems.
While Hurricane Sandy brought other threats to transportation in our part of the country, most of those problems have been alleviated – the Battery Tunnel has been reopened and most New York City bridges and tunnels are operating at full capacity, allowing for the flow of traffic to be easier.
We want to know what your plans are, Babylon!
