Attention: Thanksgiving travelers! If you're hitting the road for the holiday, you'll want to make sure you plan ahead to avoid getting stuck in nightmare traffic.

AAA estimates that 51 million Americans plan to travel for the holiday, which means the roads will be super packed. It is expected to be the busiest Thanksgiving travel time for drivers in a dozen years.

The worst time for Detroit drivers to leave the house is Tuesday, November 21 - between the hours of 3:00 to 5:30 p.m., according to AAA.
