The traditional summer holidays begin at the end of the school term￼. This brings new challenges to the traffic management sector￼.
Increased traffic on UK roads￼, particularly to the South-West, is one of the most popular holiday destination￼s. COVID-19 Means that many families have decided on a “staycation￼” In preference to flying abroad￼, resulting in a greater volume of traffic on UK roads￼.
“Motorists are being urged to check their vehicles before starting their journey.”
There is normally a higher incidence of breakdowns in July and August￼. These problems are certain to be exacerbated due to COVID-19, with many vehicles having been parked up for three months in lockdown.
