Planning to get away for the long Fourth of July weekend?

If you live in one of these cities, you might want to leave a little extra early. (Especially if you are headed south to the beach!)

According to AAA, over 80 percent of travelers will get behind the wheel for the holiday, which means 41.4 million people will be taking to the roads, up 4 percent this year. Closest to us, Atlanta made it on this list.

Those in New York City, Boston, Houston, and Seattle could be hit hardest, seeing delays up to three times longer than normal. Chicago and Orlando are also estimated to face troubles.

If you can avoid leaving on Wednesday, that would be a smart bet. Delays are expected to be the worst on the 3rd, 2019. DRIVE SAFE CLT! You can see more here.
