Hitting the road this Thanksgiving? You're not the only one.

Over 90 percent of travelers will travel by automobile. And what do they plan to do after reaching their destination?

The Interstate 95 corridor between Washington D.C. and Philadelphia is one of the busiest stretches of highway in the United States. That's on a normal day.
