The worst times to travel this Christmas weekend

Posted on December 18, 2018 by Anthony Vulin in Beverly Hills, Glendale, Hollywood Hills, Santa Monica, Silver Lake, Uncategorized, West Hollywood

Driving to visit family and friends this Christmas? You’ll have a lot of company on the road— especially if you’re planning to head out of town Thursday afternoon.

AAA and transportation analysis firm Inrix predict the absolute worst of holiday traffic in Los Angeles will rear its head from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, when trip times are expected to double.

Flying might not be much better, as a record number of travelers are also expected to take to the skies from Saturday to New Year’s Day. The highest number of travelers are expected to fly on December 22, 23, and 26, AAA and Inrix say. 

More than 102 million Americans will go by car for their holiday travels this year, AAA forecasts. That’s a 4.4 percent increase over last year, and the highest number of car-travelers since 2001, when AAA started tracking holiday travel.
