New Waze data reveals best and worst times to drive over bank holiday weekend
With as many as over 20 million drivers expected to take to UK roads over a scorching May bank holiday weekend, crowdsourced sat nav app Waze reveals that motorists will spend 23% longer in the car than the average Friday, and will drive for 32% longer (78km compared to 59km).
Traffic jam reports are expected to peak at 100,000 on Friday afternoon with speeds slowing to an average 21 mph across the country, as millions make their getaways from work to take advantage of record breaking Saharan temperatures.
