Memorial Day travel expected to be record-breaking – The San Diego Union

Travel over the Memorial Day weekend is expected to be the busiest on record with more than 3.2 million Southern Californians forecast to leave home — a 5.3 percent over last year.

According to the Automobile Club of Southern California, the last record was set in 2005 when 3.2 million Southern Californians traveled over the holiday weekend.

The coming holiday will mark the seventh consecutive year that travel has grown, says the Auto Club.

Similar records will likely be broken for statewide travel, with nearly 5.2 million Californians projected to take trips.
