People protesting the possible appointment of an emergency manager for Detroit have slowed traffic on an area interstate during the morning rush hour.

WWJ-AM and The Detroit News say 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.

The Detroit City Council last week requested an appeal of 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 on the appeal is scheduled Tuesday morning in Lansing.
