Leaving Town for the Memorial Day Weekend? Here Is the Best Time to Travel
Travelers, start your engines! Ah, you may want to wait just a little bit.
One of the busiest times to hit the road is any Friday afternoon. But today will be probably one of most congested days to travel.
You want your Memorial weekend to start out on a good note right? Ok, here's a little free advice. Wait until later tonight. Hey don't shoot the messenger!
A new study looked at Memorial Day weekend traffic, and found that things get REALLY clogged on the roads today until after 7:00 P.M. The absolute worst time to hit the road is between 3:00 and 4:00 P.M.
Believe it or not, if you waited until today to skip town, you're actually better off than the people who tried to get a jump. The absolute worst Memorial Day traffic every year is on Thursday. And the second-worst is on Wednesday. In fact, the Thursday before Memorial Day has the worst traffic of any day of the entire year.
The good news is you'll be paying less at the pump for gas!
