      The Thanksgiving holiday marks one of the busiest times of the year for travel.

      According to Tripadvisor, travel is up by seven percent this year. Fifty-seven percent of people are traveling by car.

      FOX 31 spoke to residents of Southwest Georgia who say they seemed more comfortable with the idea of driving whether it was for reasons of finance, proximity or fear of flying.

      Georgia State Patrol has officials out this holiday weekend and hope to lower the 1000 accidents from last year.
