These are the worst times for Memorial Day road-trippers to travel

Memorial Day travelers better buckle up for a congested journey.

Around 42.8 million Americans plan to head out on vacation for the upcoming holiday weekend, according to a new report by AAA, with 1.5 million more people than last year clogging up roads, railways and airports.

That marks a 3.6% jump from 2018, and the second-highest Memorial Day travel volume since AAA started keeping track in 2000.

About 37.6 million of these travelers (88%) will travel by automobile, the report found, a record high for the de facto start of summer. The worst times to travel will be late afternoon on Thursday May 23 and Friday May 24 as an influx of commuters clocking out of work early floods the roads, according to the analytics company INRIX, which collaborated with AAA.
