RAC expects bank holiday roads to be quietest for at least seven years

“Of course, there will still almost certainly be jamson local roads leading to beaches, country parks and other beauty spots, probably made up of people who live within very easy reach of these destinations. “While it’s true that some car parks in popular locations were quick to fill up last weekend, it was positive to see that many of the fears around people swarming to tourist destinations thankfully didn’t translate into widespread problems. So this weekend looks more likelyto be one more dominated by barbecues at home and short trips to local parks than lengthy traffic jams on major roads – although anyone who does venture out will have the peace of mindofknowing that we’re only a phone call away if they’re unfortunate enough to break down. “For those planning on driving this weekend, it’s crucial they run through some quick checks to ensure their car doesn’t let them down – especially if it’s been laid up for long periods through the lockdown.
