AAA officials said the number of calls was expected to get worse on Tuesday.
Drivers were warned to make sure to keep an emergency kit with themselves on the road. The kit should be filled with snacks, warm clothing, a blanket and any medicine. Drivers should have a full tank of gas and check their tire pressure after this long holiday weekend.
“AAA wants to ensure all motorists safety and security. It is critical that drivers take every precaution, plan and prepare for the possibility of being stranded roadside for an extended period of time," Parmenter said on Monday.
