These Are The Worst Times To Drive And Shop This Thanksgiving


With Thanksgiving just around the corner, that means we can expect a lot of traffic as everyone goes from house to house.

Well Waze, just released traffic prediction for this year based on data it gathered from its 90 million active users' daily drives last November.

Pre-holiday airport travel is also expected to see a jump in the two days before Thanksgiving.

Traffic to supermarkets is expected to reach its height at 3 p.m. on the day before Thanksgiving.

Traffic is also expected to increase on the afternoon of Sunday, Nov. 26, particularly around 2 p.m.

The worst time to travel after Thanksgiving nationally will be Monday, November 27th from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Waze also broke out specific data for major U.S. cities, shown in the chart below.

Based on last year's data for Black Friday, Waze expects searches for directions to retail locations to start late during the night of Thanksgiving.

Routes to stores are expected to peak from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, with 1 p.m. being the busiest time.

Hopefully, this helps with all your traveling this Thanksgiving and Black Friday!
