Drivers hit busy Kentucky highways for Thanksgiving travel plans

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - AAA is expecting Thanksgiving travel to be the busiest in more than a decade, and Wednesday could be one of the most crowded days on the road for drivers.

Go out on Kentucky highways and you might see license plates from Illinois, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina and even New York. It’s been a busy day on the road, but it’s not over yet.

Some folks hit the roads as early as 2 a.m. to beat the traffic, but others say the travelling hasn’t been so bad throughout the day.

"Pretty good, actually. It has been pretty decent. Better than I thought it would be,” said Patty Brittain.

But travelling long distances isn’t always easy. Still everyone has their ways of coping and passing the time.

"We take gas breaks and bathroom breaks,” Frances Currell said.

Some say the best way to get through the drive is to look forward to what comes at the end of the road.

"Oh, the home cooking. Family,” said Currell.

For a successful road trip experts say you should be patient on the roads, give yourself extra time to get to your destination, buckle your seatbelt and don’t drink and drive.
