More drivers than ever will be sharing the road Wednesday.
Travel experts say the day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year.
AAA reports 42.5 million people plan to drive over the Thanksgiving holiday, the highest number since the start of the recession.
Of course, with driving usually comes delays.
A great online source is Ohio’s Department of Transportation website, BuckeyeTraffic.org, where you can find current road conditions and accident updates.
What if you’re already in the car? Not to worry.
AAA has a free app you can download on your phone called AAA TripTik Mobile. The app provides the latest gas prices, maps, directions and AAA-approved hotels along the way.
Google Maps is also a useful phone app. You can turn on a filter that shows you realtime traffic conditions.
To do this, you need to be in your Google Maps app. Then, you need to tap on the arrow icon on the lower-left corner to find your current location and condition. Next, you tap on the curled paper icon in the lower-right corner and tap the “show traffic” button.
