LOS ANGELES ( Labor Day is the United States federal holiday which is observed in the first Monday of every September. The citizens of United States are all geared up to celebrate their holiday by spending it outside with their friends and families. The Labor Day weather forecast says that nice weather is expected on this weekend.

The American Automobile Association (AAA) revealed a recent report where it is said that this year more cars will hit the streets of United States than last year. This means that there will be more congested traffic during the Labor Day weekend. The citizens are advised to try traveling at off -peak hours if they want to avoid the traffic jam. However, AAA spokeswoman Nancy White said that the basic problem that keeps coming is people tends to go to the same popular places to spend their holidays which leads to the traffic woes.

For Labor Day weekend trip, best place can be less crowded places like mountains, lakes and other inland spots which are less thronged by public. However, the car trips over this weekend are expected to increase by 10% with 91% travelers in United States. AAA’s Utah spokesperson Rolayne Fairclough said that despite the continued mixed feelings regarding the economic recovery, a “strong” comeback in travel can be anticipated for this holiday weekend. On the other hand, the weather forecast also says that Hurricane Earl can also affect the holiday travelers. The California Highway Patrol Commissioner Joe Farrow said in his statement that the Police will conduct a maximum enforcement period from today which will last till Monday. He also added that for safety and security of the people if someone is found driving “impaired” the police will immediately arrest that person.
