If you’re planning to go somewhere for the 4th of July holiday, plan ahead and either leave early or meditate before getting on the road.

AAA is reporting 1.6 million people plan to travel over the Independence Day holiday according to MLive.  The number of travelers is up from last year’s numbers by 5.5 percent, which would make it the highest number of travelers for the 4th of July weekend in the 18 years AAA has been tracking holiday travel.

So if you were aggravated driving up north or to the lake last year, I suggest either staying home or again, meditate.

 

BTW, this year holiday travel is considered from July 3rd through the 8th because of July 4th landing midweek as reported by MLive.
