One of busiest travel days could see extra delays due to rain


The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year but with the rainfall beginning, Wednesday could have extra delays.

It’s the first rain that the Bay Area has seen in a while, therefore, oils will come to the surface of the roads making them slippery. 

This means drivers should take extra precaution and drive safe. 

If need be, driving slow will allow you to break easier than when speeding. 

Around 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday is when the heaviest rainfall is expected to begin. 

According to a study by AAA, this year’s travel is expected to have just over 54-million people driving across the county.

This is the highest it’s been since 2005. 

It is advised to account for traffic and leave a little earlier if possible in anticipation for the extra cars on the road and slick roads.
