Solar Eclipse Chasers Will Cause Traffic
On Monday, the Solar Eclipse will attract more drivers to the road, looking to find the best spot to witness the rare celestial event. Millions of people will camp out on a 70 mile strip, potentially causing delays for trucking shipments. Many carriers have already re-routed trips to avoid popular areas, to minimize any delays or deviations from their schedule. The FMCSA stated that this event is like none other, there is no precedent set for this potential log jam. States are expecting upwards of 1 million extra viewers to hit the road for the event.
