hit the road

1. It's almost 6; I've been working since 7 this morning. It's time for me to hit the road.
2. Let's hit the road early tomorrow so we can get there before sundown.
3. We planned on hitting the road early, but we overslept.
4. He has a two-hour commute to work everyday. He hits the road as early as 6 a.m.
5. If you start causing trouble, the bartender will probably tell you to hit the road.

When you hit the road, you start a trip or a journey. You can also tell someone to hit the road if you're angry and you want that person to leave.
