AAA: 38 million drivers expected to hit the road for Memorial Day weekend
More drivers and more police will be on the roads for Memorial Day weekend.
AAA estimated 43 million Americans would be traveling, including 38 million expected on the roads.
The 38 million driving is a 4 percent increase from last year, according to the AAA.
More police will be on the road across the state too to make sure drivers are wearing their seat belts. In Connecticut, it's part of the Click It or Ticket campaign.
State troopers say all drivers should utilize courteous, lawful driving skills, plan for traffic delays due to road construction and make safety their top priority whenever they get behind the wheel.
Drivers 18 and older not wearing their seat belts will be fined $92.
The fine for drivers under 18 and passengers is $120.
The campaign will run through June 2.
