Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - There are a half million more drivers hitting the road this Memorial Day weekend according to a triple A study. The study showed people will be driving 50 or more miles to their vacation destination.

A triple A official says this holiday usually has a lot of people driving rather than flying, since it is a shorter holiday. There are more people in our region traveling over the weekend compared to others.

Gene Ladoucer – AAA Representative: “Primarily because we are a wide spread geographically rural region, where traveling 50 miles or more is common, plus the fact that this region has the lowest unemployment rates anywhere in the country, so those two factors lead to fact that we get to see a large amount of people traveling this weekend.”
