Drivers urged to avoid 'Frantic Friday' Christmas traffic peak
More than 1 million motorists are expected to clog up UK roads on the last working day before the festive break
Drivers have been warned to leave before lunchtime on “Frantic Friday” to avoid the worst of the Christmas traffic, with 1.3 million motorists expected to clog up UK roads on the last working day before Christmas.
Long queues and travel disruption have been predicted for Friday, and rail strikes and fog are expected to worsen congestion during the annual Christmas getaway.
