The number of Americans traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday will increase over 11% from last year, with an estimated 42.2 million taking a trip of at least 50 miles, according to the AAA auto club. Trips by motor vehicle remain the most popular for holiday travel, with 94 percent, or 39.7 million people reaching their destination by driving, a release from AAA said.

America's Road Team Captains, elite professional truck drivers chosen by the American Trucking Associations, are offering advice on how to navigate through highway traffic and arrive at your destination safely.

"Thanksgiving is about being with your family," said America's Road Team Captain Steve Eckhoff. "But this also means that we'll see a rise in highway traffic, with many motorists driving in unfamiliar areas. Caution and patience is especially important so we all arrive safely to our loved ones."
