At The WBZ Water Cooler: A lot of you are getting ready to head up north, or maybe to the Cape, and you are bound to hit some traffic along the way. AAA’S Mary Maguire tells us, it’s good to “time your trip” to try and avoid the busy congestion.

Maguire says having the EZ pass open the door for some “speed and convenience,” and she says “crank some good tunes and chat with the folks in your car.” She adds that a great destination at the end doesn’t hurt either.
