(Royal Oak, MI) -- It has become an annual holiday for car enthusiasts in the Motor City, but police are cracking down on early congestion along Woodward Avenue. The Woodward Dream Cruise doesn't get underway for another week, but some classic car buffs have already taken to the streets of Royal Oak in anticipation of the event. Police have been clearing gatherings at area parking lots, and telling drivers to come back next week. WDIV-TV says some businesses along Woodward gave the city power of attorney, which means police can ask early cruisers to leave.
