Memorial Day weekend is upon us, and many who have endured cabin fever throughout the cold months are looking to flee town for a few days. However, it is handy to have a few pointers at one's disposal.

Brian Thomas, the president of Akron AAA, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to go over some travel tips for the busy weekend. Thomas says a record number of travelers will be on the roads this weekend, with a figure around 42 million people in their cars. He says the time to avoid being on the freeways is during rush hour on Thursday, with many getting a jump on the long weekend.

Akron AAA has two locations in the area, with one downtown on Rosa Parks Drive and the other in Fairlawn.
