It is officially the Holiday Traffic season in the Hudson Valley. We need to pack our patience this time of year when we get in the car to go somewhere.

Be ready for communities to have special events going on between now and the New Year that will most likely result in your getting stuck in traffic. However, if you know ahead of time, you can plan your travels and hopefully avoid delays.
