Glastonbury traffic chaos explained - Video *IMMEDIATE RELEASE*
Amanda Stretton - Motoring Editor, Confused.com
As festival goers report taking six hours to travel two miles as they attempt to get to Glastonbury, Amanda Stretton - former racing driver and Motoring Editor at Confused.com - is calling for closer cooperation between festivals and police in order reduce traffic chaos.
Adverse weather conditions mean roads near the Worthy Farm site have become churned up, adding problems to the already large numbers of vehicles heading to the festival.
Amanda Stretton, Motoring Editor at Confused.com says, “Large numbers of people heading to festivals by car every year causes predictable traffic jams which is highly frustrating for festival goers as well as local people who become trapped in the annual gridlock. Organisers and local police need to reassess traffic flow and provide people other means of transport to the event which will take the pressure off the already congested roads.
"If you can't leave later than originally anticipated, motorists should at least be prepared before they set out on a journey - for instance by checking your tyres, making sure your car battery is charged and making sure the car is topped up with water."
