Lots of people will be on the road this Christmas

It was common knowledge that last Thanksgiving was one of the busiest travel days on record. At least according to the American Automobile Association, or AAA, the trend of busy traveling seasons will continue in to the winter holiday season.

Overall, over 1 in 3 Americans are going to take some sort of trip this holiday, and this marks an over 4 percent increase over the number of people who traveled this time last year. Of the 112.5 million people across the country who are going to take a trip between December 22 and New Year's Day, 102 million will drive. This will be the largest number of people to travel via car during this season since the AAA started keeping track of this statistic.

This is going to mean that there will be a lot of people visiting the Tampa area and, in particular, other big cities in Florida. It also means that there is going to be more traffic on this state's roads and highways. This could result in significant delays, to the point where it could take up to four times longer to get to a destination than it would in normal traffic conditions.

Perhaps more importantly, though, more vehicles on the road will, statistically speaking, mean that there are more possibilities for car accidents. Drivers in the area will need to slow down, drive with extra awareness and be patient, even in the face of significant traffic jams. If they do not take these simple steps, and cause an accident as a result, they may have to pay compensation to their victims.
