The Sunday after Thanksgiving is always one of the busiest travel days of the year, many are traveling back home after the holiday. The traffic on the roadways can cause headaches for drivers heading to their final destination. 

Bob Nesbit and Mark Woodward are traveling through the Mountain State heading home. They said traffic has not been that bad so far and explained why they chose to drive instead of fly. 

“None basically just when we got on the Turnpike,” Nesbitt said. 

“So I’m married with two kids so its my wife and two kids, so it’s a lot easier for us to just pack the car and hit the road versus traveling with the airplanes and all those expenses. So its cheaper and a lot easier more convenient,” Woodward said. 

According to Triple A, the busiest time to travel on Thanksgiving weekend is the Sunday after the holiday.
