AAA reports the year-end holiday travel season volume is going to be the highest on record, which goes back to 2001. In all, an estimated 99 million Americans are going to travel 50 miles or more for Christmas or New Year's Eve, which is about 4 percent more than who traveled the same distance last year.
The year-end holiday is defined as the period between Tuesday, December 23 through Sunday, January 4. Of those travelers, the vast majority - more than 90 percent - are going to be traveling by car.
Law enforcement agencies across the country - and particularly in Florida, where travel tends to be higher than in most other states - have launched a series of staggered crackdowns on various road-related violations, including drunk driving, uninsured driving and reckless driving.
