Drivers warned to take extra care this bank holiday weekend


There is nothing better than a bank holiday, but those three-day weekend feels can be marred by heavy traffic.

Motorists are reminded to pay extra attention while driving over the weekend due to the bank holiday traffic. 

AA Roadwatch is reminding drivers that there will be tourists on the roads as well, who will be driving unfamiliar routes. 

'Well we expect traffic volumes to pick up earlier than usual in the cities as people leave work early for the Bank Holiday,' AA Roadwatch's Lauren Beehan told Breaking News.
