Well you can tell Christmas is approaching fast! Everyone is clearly in a rush to get their last minute presents! I popped into Stafford earlier this evening and could not believe just how bad the traffic was! I thought I would write this blog to warn everyone that if you decide to set off to do some late Christmas shopping, I would try to stay clear of Stafford centre between 4:30pm and 6:00pm as that is when the traffic is at its worst as you have people leaving work, schools, college and then the usual buses and cyclists that you get normally but just seem duplicate around that time! The traffic is so bad in Stafford (not as bad as some places I know) and something should really be done about it (but nothing ever will).
Also, this time of year seems to be the most popular time for cars to want to break down! But they always decide to breakdown in the most annoying and crowded possible place it can! I speak from experience, can you tell?
Anyway, today was just a quick reminder of how bad the traffic is in Stafford and the times to try and avoid if at all possible. More traffic updates to come as the days go on!
If I don’t post before, Merry Christmas everyone, drive safely!
