DETROIT (AP) — People protesting the possible appointment of an emergency manager for Detroit slowed traffic on an area interstate during the morning rush hour period.
WWJ-AM and The Detroit News report three slow moving vehicles clogged traffic Monday on Interstate 94 near the Lodge Freeway.
Police say two vehicles had signs reading "democracy" and "Detroit emergency manager."
A similar protest took place Thursday when a group of vehicles caused a slowdown on southbound I-75 near I-94.
Detroit's city councilmembers have said they will appeal a review team's decision and Gov. Rick Snyder's assertion that there is a financial emergency and the city has no good plan to fix it. A hearing is scheduled Tuesday in Lansing about a possible appeal.
