Holiday Traveling in Alabama


If you’re heading over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house this year, be prepared. Triple A is expecting more than one-hundred-million Americans will travel this holiday season between December 23rd and January 1st. That’s the highest amount on record for this time of year. Experts say that is because of the strong economy.

Alabama State Troopers are also encouraging drivers to make smart choices before getting behind the wheel. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency will have a larger presence this holiday travel period by assigning all available state troopers to patrol roadways.

The ALEA has created the hashtag Arrive Alive Alabama. Law enforcement is reminding everyone to obey speed limits, make sure everyone is wearing a seatbelt, avoid texting and driving, and avoid driving while under the influence.
