You may be able to avoid bumper-to-bumper traffic this Thanksgiving holiday because there may not be any.

AAA says this could be the first time in six years holiday travel declines. The auto club predicts about 400,000 fewer travelers on the road across the country this year as compared to last.

However, state police say they're expecting to see more drivers on Kentucky's roadways because gas prices have fallen so low and police say they're prepared for the holiday rush.

Police will be out all weekend, looking for drivers under the influence as well as speeders.

The official enforcement period begins at six Wednesday night and continues through midnight on Sunday.
