Local law enforcement is urging drivers to use care when traveling the highways during the busy holiday season which begins later this week.  AAA projects that 2.5 million more people nationally will travel 50 miles away or more from home than last year this Thanksgiving Day weekend.  Locally, Door County Sheriff Steve Delarwelle says drivers should plan ahead and take their time as well as remember the basics.

 

 

Although gas prices are 31 cents higher on average than last Thanksgiving, travel is expected to be heavier than usual, according to AAA.  Peak travel time is expected from 2 pm until 7 pm Wednesday.  You can find holiday road trip survival tips with this story online.
