AAA: More than 1.4 million stranded drivers expected

AAA anticipates it will come to the rescue of more than 1.4 million stranded motorists during the Christmas and New Year’s holiday peak driving period, which runs from Dec.18 to Jan. 2.

From highways to mall parking lots, AAA expects to be busy across the country during the holidays with battery replacements and jump starts, changing tires, extricating vehicles from snow, towing vehicles for repair and more.

“Whether on your way to grandma’s house or the mall for last-minute shopping, car trouble can quickly dampen your holiday spirit,” said Marshall L. Doney, AAA Automotive vice president. “AAA expects to come to the rescue of more than 1.4 million stranded motorists around the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, but many of those breakdowns can be avoided with a touch of preventive maintenance.”
