Heavy traffic predicted for bank holiday weekend

27 million drivers are expected to hit UK roads this weekend as the British public celebrates the three day weekend.

Heavy traffic predicted for bank holiday weekend

This impressive figure amounts to almost 60% of the UK’s total number of drivers, meaning that lengthy traffic jams and long queues are all too likely to occur.

Research from comparison site Confused.com stated that a huge percentage of the traffic will occur on the first day of the bank holiday weekend as the public set out to begin their relaxing mini-breaks. But, even as the weekend draws to a close on Monday there will still be around 16,650,000 cars on the road, which equates to 37% of all UK drivers.

North East England is set for the largest amount of traffic whilst the average motorist is expected to cover 75 miles across the three days.

“As UK drivers recover from the chaos of one bank holiday, another is very quickly upon us and we can expect this to be equally as busy on the roads,” said Amanda Stretton, Motoring Editor at Confused. “People can expect more delays, heavier congestion and possibly more accidents.”

“Drivers without strict plans may want to consider driving on Monday, as this is likely to be the quietest day on the roads.”

Insurance firm Green Flag have also that 43,000 breakdowns are likely to occur which will undoubtedly cause more delays and congestion.

Due to such heavy amount of traffic and potential wet weather conditions, Friday 28th April has been dubbed “Black Friday” by traffic analysts as they fear it’ll be the worst day of the year for traffic accidents so far.
