The Automobile Club of Southern California predicts a new all-time record for the number of travelers in Southern California. Nearly 7.7 million Southern California residents and 12.4 million statewide are expected to travel at least 50 miles away from home during the holiday period between Dec. 23 and Jan. 2 – a 1.8% increase compared to 2015, marking the eighth consecutive year of growth for end-of-year holiday travel.
Eighty-nine percent of travelers, or 6.8 million Southern Californians and 10.9 million statewide, will travel by car to their destinations – a 1.7 percent increase from last year when 6.7 million Southland residents and 10.8 million Californians took cars to holiday getaways.
Nationally, the Auto Club anticipates rescuing about 980,000 motorists across the country during the holiday season, so it’s a good idea to have your vehicle properly serviced before you head out.
