NH police urge caution as thousands hit the road for holiday travel

HOOKSETT - Around 42 million Americans are expected to take a road trip this Thanksgiving, and thousands of them are flooding N.H. roadways.

You may remember the night before Thanksgiving last year N.H. had a significant snowstorm that knocked out power in thousands of homes. With better weather this year, holiday travel is expected to be up.

With all of the extra cars on the roads, N.H. State Police are reminding drivers of the dangers.

Electronic signs read "96 New Hampshire traffic deaths, one is too many.”

That is just the number of deadly crashes in the state this year so far.

The nice weather and low gas prices are having close to 2 million New Englanders hit the road this week.

As of dinner time Wednesday, many drivers at the Hooksett rest area telling NH1 News they saw the most congestion in Massachusetts.
