Millions of people will be on the move as the long July 4th holiday weekend begins.  During that stretch of five days, law enforcement agencies will be keeping close tabs on travelers and partiers to make sure it's a safe holiday for everyone.   We'll check in with the Ohio Department of Transportation and the State Highway Patrol about what drivers can expect if they are heading away from home for the holiday.     Plus, for those hitting the road--an unexpected summer gift: historically low gas prices.  Local police say you  may want to re-think setting off those backyard fireworks as they can land you in trouble with the law.  Then, Cleveland plans for a community wide conversation to help find "common ground."
