    We spent the holiday in the UP and the traffic seemed pretty much the usual for Labor Day. I will say, drivers DID seem to be a bit more on the sane side. There were a few random bottlenecks that caused stop and go travel but we didn't encounter as much aggressive driving as we have seen in the past.

    BUT was the amount of motorists higher,lower or the same compared to last year. That would make a difference in the outcome I am sure.
