AAA: 3 million Texans likely to travel over holiday weekend

🕐 1 min read

COPPELL, Texas (AP) — A travel group predicts 3 million Texans will hit the road or take flights during the long Memorial Day weekend.

AAA Texas on Wednesday announced the projection represents a 5 percent increase in holiday travel 50 miles or more away from home, compared to a year ago. The association says it’s also the highest volume of Texas travelers for the Memorial Day period in 10 years.

The time frame is Thursday, May 21, through Monday, May 25.

AAA Texas authorities attribute the increase in travelers to a strong employment market and low gasoline prices.

The Texas Department of Transportation’s 14th annual statewide “Click It or Ticket” campaign runs May 18 through May 31. Officers will be out in force making sure travelers use seat belts.
