After looking at a few court cases that are out there, it boils down to: "using an automobile for trade, commerce or hire"; that is, if they earn their living on the road. This would be people like truckers, delivery drivers, etc.

Additionally, if you are operating a private automobile, for non-business, private purposes, you fall under the legal distinction of a "traveler".
