Memorial Day weekend is now upon us and thousands of Americans will be honoring fallen loved ones, friends and fellow citizens who fought and paid the ultimate price to safeguard their families. Almost 42,000,000 Americans will be on the highways to visit cemeteries, events and shrines around the country. The holiday also unofficially marks the start of summer for many. The Triple-A says they anticipate a five% increase in people traveling for the extended weekend. The number of people anticipated to journey to different places is expected to be the highest number in over a dozen years.
