Did you know that drivers are expected to undertake around 19.6 million car trips to see friends and relatives leading up to Christmas Eve. The RAC has warned that the widespread train workers’ action on Christmas Eve will result in greater highway traffic that evening.
Motorists traveling for the holidays are competing for road space with commuters and regular drivers. Overall traffic volumes are anticipated to be significantly higher, resulting in traffic bottlenecks in and around cities and at crucial pinch spots on important roadways.
Major delays are less likely, with a projected 3.6 million leisure automobile trips on Christmas Day alone, another 3.3 million on Boxing Day, and an additional 1.4 million travels on both days. However, because there won’t be any commuter traffic on the roads, total traffic volumes should be lower.
Although we are out of snowy weather, heavy traffic is a great cause for concern. Drivers must still make every effort to prevent their vehicles from failing, especially as much of the country will be either on strike or on holiday. Checking the oil and coolant when the engine is cold and ensuring the tyres have enough traction and are properly inflated are two easy steps that can reduce the likelihood of a major failure. It’s crucial to top off with a high-quality screen wash that offers protection far below zero degrees since gritted roads necessitate frequent windscreen clearing.
