December 20th 2019 famously became FRANTIC FRIDAY as motorists in their droves hit the UK’s road networks, making driving conditions highly stressful at the best of times. For many, with their work done and dusted for 2019, their festive holiday season had started. More commuters on the road in 2021, isolating and keeping safe in their own vehicles.
Fast forward to December 24th last year and commuters were faced with a FRANTIC THURSDAY situation especially with more people spending their holidays in the UK due to the current Worldwide travel restrictions.
Our 2021 Seasonal Driving Tips
MAKE A PLAN.
Unexpected situations can occur at any time on Britain’s busy road networks which makes planning even more important. Check automotive route planners that will flag up roadworks in progress and other potential delays. By the looks of it, 2021 will be very similar to last year, but at least there’s an end in sight with the launch of the new vaccines to help combat Covid-19.
Busy road times are easy to foresee and it’s a kind of a no-brainer to try and not hit the road during peak travel times.
To avoid another possible holiday season gridlock, think about travelling on Tuesday or Wednesday if possible.
Morning After Hangovers
Drinking and driving should be avoided at all times but driving with a mega morning hangover can be risky. If you’ve had a few it might be wise to delay your trip until you’ve sobered up.
If you think you might not be in the best condition then there is a very good chance YOU’RE NOT.
Be safe as you drive home from any festivities and have a fantastic year, or at least, try and make the best of it.
