Thanksgiving Day is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated moments of the year because it allows you to enjoy a few days of vacation with your family.
However, these are also days when residents must endure heavy vehicular traffic, both in cities and on highways.
According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), more than 4.5 million Southern California residents plan to vacation by road.
To make your rest days more pleasant, it is best to take some measures beforehand.
It is necessary to bear in mind the high prices that gasoline currently registers, with a Los Angeles median price of $ 4.70 for a gallon of regular gas. The price can vary by up to $ 1 dollar between service stations, so identify the most suitable for your economy.
It is advisable to fill the tank at night or during the first hours of the morning, when the temperature is cooler and the fuel does not present excess gases.
It is necessary to verify the exact calibration of the tires, to optimize the consumption of gasoline. Check the proper pressure for your tires in the owner’s manual or in the information that is usually installed on the inner frame of the driver’s door.
If you plan to go out on the road, it is best to take the road very early to avoid the peak hours, and that it will be present in almost all the freeways that leave Los Angeles.
One of the Hottest spots on Highway 5 will be between Colorado Street and Florence Avenue.
The day with the highest vehicle load is Wednesday, especially between 3 pm and 5:30 pm
After the rest days, take into account that Sunday will be the most complicated due to the number of walkers who will return to their places of residence, with a greater vehicle load in the afternoon and evening.
