That's 1.5 million more than last Thanksgiving weekend. The department is joining the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the Illinois State Police to remind motorists to Click It of Ticket.

Still, she said Monday will be a particularly "heavy travel day" at the airport because of returning holiday travelers and outbound business travelers.

Newswatch 16 caught up with a few folks who were already in transit to their Thanksgiving destinations. "Although gasoline demand will be high this week, it will be cheaper for gas stations to purchase their fuel than a week ago". Peak travel time from downtown to O'Hare on the Kennedy Expressway is expected to be one hour, 14 minutes.

If you choose to travel by air, you're in luck!

Regardless of how you travel, AAA urges you "pack your patience". "Typically the interstate is where we're gonna see the bulk of the traffic, but the main routes leading in and out of the beach will pick up some too".

Plan ahead and check weather forecasts, road conditions and traffic patterns, leaving early to allow plenty of time for your trip.

With Thanksgiving coming up, many families are getting ready to gas up and hit the road.

The program provides a confidential ride to the intoxicated driver - and a tow for their vehicle - to their home or to a safe location within a 10-mile radius.

According to AAA, the worst day for travel in Boston is Tuesday from 5:15 to 7:15 p.m.
