Christmas travel delays on deck for return home [Yahoo! Finance]
Americans traveling Thursday and Friday after Christmas should expect double and even triple the traffic delay times in some cities, according to a recent report by transportation analytics company INRIX.
“Travelers should be getting used to crowded highways and airports, as this marks the eighth straight year of new record-high travel volumes for the year-end holidays,” Paula Twidale, vice president of travel at AAA, said in a statement.
From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles and Seattle will experience slight delay times while New York City, San Fransisco and Washington, D.C., will experience double or triple the usual traffic delays over the same period.
