(UNDATED) - Memorial Day weekend traditionally starts off the summer travel season, and this season is shaping up to be the busiest in years.

With race weekend coming up here in Indiana, the Indiana State Police would like to remind all motorists that there will be extra troopers on the roadways this upcoming holiday weekend.

Troopers will be working federally funded overtime during the "Click it or Ticket" Campaign and Operation CARE, or Combined Accident Reduction Effort, to help insure safe family travel.

The "AAA" Motor Club suggests leaving early if planning to travel this holiday weekend, as they are predicting that 39.3 million Americans will be traveling.

The increase is expected to be the highest volume for holiday travel since 2005.
