Traffic on US-2 (and US-41, for that matter) can be highly variable and depends significantly on the time of year. Summer and fall vacationers, college students commuting to and from Michigan Tech and Northern Michigan Universities, and events like the firearm deer hunting season heavily impact traffic levels.

Implementation of passing lanes (particularly the 12 sets on US-2 between Escanaba and St. Ignace) do a lot to mitigate road rage and dangerous passing maneuvers.
