An estimated one million more people will be traveling this Thanksgiving holiday, according to AAA.

That's the most travelers since 2007. 

More than 89 percent of those people traveling will be on the roads. 

The most popular travel days are the Wednesday before the holiday and the Sunday after.

AAA said the projected 48.7 million Americans traveling 50 miles or more will need to be extra patient this year and limit distractions.
