You’ll have a lot of company out there if you’re traveling this Labor Day weekend. AAA is forecasting about one million Virginians will be making a trip 50 miles or longer from home. That’s the most in the past six years for the same period. AAA’s Tammy Arnette says there’s also more willingness to take on additional credit card debt. But don’t let dangerous behavior ruin the fun. Arnette says there’s a traffic accident every four minutes in Virginia with an average of two fatalities per day.
