Zapping Auto Moto Travel diary: the Baie de Somme in a Nissan X-Trail
The weekend of August 15 was popular on the roads. As Bison Futé had foreseen, by announcing a red traffic (very difficult) in the direction of Departures on Saturday, it did not fail. Especially since the situation was almost as difficult in the direction of the Returns. Red was on the map of France in the far west and north zone, with orange (difficult traffic) for the rest of the territory.
Thus, more than 1,100 kilometers of traffic jams were observed at the national level, this Saturday August 12. In detail, the peak of slowdowns occurred at 12:05 p.m. with 1,138 kilometers of traffic jams. Bison Futé detailed this:
“The peak of traffic jams was reached around 12:05 p.m. with 1,138 cumulative kilometers at the national level. For the Province zone, the peak of traffic jams was reached around 12:05 p.m. with 1,089 cumulative kilometers and around 12:05 p.m. with 49 cumulative kilometers in the Island zone. of France.”
Corks don’t survive the weekend
Fortunately, the situation calmed down for this Monday, August 14. Although the weekend is extended, traffic conditions are fine. The map of France is completely green, according to Bison Futé, with normal traffic. This both in the direction of Departures and Returns.
It should stay that way on Tuesday August 15th. On the other hand, the situation will be difficult on August 16, in the direction of the Returns, at the level of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. The traffic jams will really come back to France from Friday, first in the direction of the Returns. We’ll be sure to come back to this in more detail later in the week.
