AAA-Memorial Day Travel

The rush hour commute starts in early afternoon and with greater intensity as traffic is jammed in both directions on Interstate 405 on the Westside of Los Angeles as commuters and Memorial Day vacationers hit the road. It's going to be another busy Memorial Day weekend on the nation's highways. Today and Monday, 31.2 million Americans will drive 50 miles or more to a beach, campground or other getaway, according to car lobbying group AAA.
