HOUSTON (KIAH) — With estimates of 100 million people being on the roads for the holidays this year, which is a 30 percent increase from last year, AAA has some suggestions for a smooth holiday drive.

  • Book a vehicle check-up. Basic vehicle maintenance reduces your risk of a breakdown or battery failure.
  • Expect delays and plan accordingly. Expect some traffic and drive at off-peak times. 
  • Avoid fatigue. While you may be tempted to drive through the night it is best to drive when you are fully rested to avoid an accident.
  • Have an emergency plan. Even if you do everything right something could always go wrong.
  • Have an extra phone charger in case you need to call for help.
