Millions of Americans are traveling over the Labor Day holiday weekend, which means there will be likely be issues on the road and at airports nationwide.
Aside from traffic congestion, Robert Sinclair, Jr., senior manager of public affairs for AAA Northeast, says travelers need to be cautious of bad weather and potential car issues that could cause a vehicle to break down in the middle of congested motorways.
When it comes to traveling on Monday, Sinclair Jr. told FOX Business that it would behoove travelers to leave their vacations by midday. Traffic will likely be heavy starting around 5 p.m. and could double trip times, he added.

Additionally, AAA is also seeing "a lot of bad weather" around the country, including flooding, Sinclair, Jr. cautioned.
"Drowning in a vehicle is one of the most dangerous weather related road conditions and especially at night and especially in unfamiliar territory," he said, noting that it takes just like five or six inches of moving water just to sweep away an SUV, much less a smaller, lighter car.
