Drivers hit the road for Thanksgiving

Millions of holiday travelers are hitting the roads today.{}

AAA of Alabama reports that nearly 40 percent of people traveling for Thanksgiving will be driving today.

Nationwide, about 43.5 million Americans are driving 50 miles or more.

That number is actually down about a percent from last year.

Here in Alabama, AAA doesn't expect the numbers to drop-off, since the weather isn't as bas as initially feared.

But you should check your vehicle before heading out on the roads.
