Last year, according to AAA, more than 38 million Americans were expected to travel on Labor Day weekend. This year that number is expected to increase by almost 3%.

But drivers say that despite the increased number of cars on the road, they'll still be traveling for the holiday.

"Driving from Hastings on Hudson to Elkhorn, Wisconsin with a stop in Cleveland to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame," said Hastings on Hudson commuter John Henderson.

Some say they'll be staying closer to home.

"Tomorrow, probably go to Greenpoint, Brooklyn to the Polish neighborhood go to the park, do some shopping, and eat out," said Pleasantville commuter Marie Dzielak.

And with increased traffic comes increased policing. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced a statewide Labor Day weekend drunk driving crackdown as part of the national "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" DWI campaign.
