Christmas weekend is here, and chances are, you’re going to travel this season. According to AAA, roughly 112.7 million Americans are expected to travel for Christmas this year. That makes 2022 the third-busiest year for holiday travel since 2000.
Most of those Americans will be on the road. AAA projects that about 102 million Americans will drive to their holiday destinations. In Michigan, if you’re on the roads this weekend, you’d better be safe, because we’re in the midst of a winter storm. Some areas of Michigan, largely towards the west side of the state, are in blizzard conditions.
