AAA estimates another Thanksgiving with an increase in holiday travelers on roads that include those in Nevada.
The auto club said it will be the fourth consecutive year of an increase for the turkey holiday, and it should signify the steady climb in the number of motorists in the midst of the down economy.
AAA Nevada estimates about 3.2 million Mountain West residents will travel 50 miles or more for the four-day Thanksgiving weekend, which equates to a 0.6 percent increase from last year.
"After several years of economic uncertainty, Mountain West residents are well-versed in budgeting so they can gather with family and friends to celebrate holidays together," said AAA Nevada spokesperson Cynthia Harris.
AAA also announced its free Tipsy Tow service will be available for drinking drivers this holiday.
Motorists who have been drinking on the holiday can request the tow service from 6 p.m. on Nov. 22 until 6 a.m. on Nov. 23. People can call the service at 1-800-222-4357.
