You have probably already fallen victim to the notorious traffic associated with Christmas. With a combination of a sudden rush of people to the stores to get those last few bits and pieces for Christmas as well as a surge of people socialising this season, the roads are likely to be heaving with traffic.
Try to embrace the Christmas spirit this festive season, and don’t contribute to the heavy congestion on UK roads. If you are one of the lucky few to have broken up for your Christmas holidays early, try to use this great gift of time to your advantage, and go out to do your shopping on the quieter times of the day, when others will be at work and leave before the dreaded rush hour traffic starts. Every little helps.
If you are not lucky enough to have this time to get out and about for your gift-buying needs, then try to avoid the busy periods on the roads. Make the most of shops being open later this winter, and head out after the evening rush hour has died down, or wait to get most of your shopping done on relatively quiet Sundays instead of its significantly busier counterpart Saturday.
Also try to spread your schedule out – don’t try to get everything done in one day, as this unnecessary stress, compounded with the strain of Christmas traffic, will only cause you undue worry. Instead plan ahead, and choose the most convenient times for you to avoid the busy roads.
Safe driving this Christmas from Britannia!
