MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Many of you will be hitting the road this weekend or early next week on your way to gather with family for the Christmas holiday. Low gas prices have made the option to travel much more affordable so the roads will be crowded and that always means tempers will be tested. I know mine always is.

There are always holiday traffic accidents and most are due to high speed and reckless driving in unusually crowded conditions. Any traffic fatality is a horrible one. A traffic fatality at Christmas time is much much worse.

Please do your part to help all of us to get to our destinations safely.

Remember why you are going, who you are going to see, and how much fun you are going to have once you get there.

Ease the foot up just a little enjoy the ride and arrive safely.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and come back home to Montgomery ready to have an even better New Year.
