Incoming Holidays to be One of the Reasons for Heavy Traffic in September
As the month of September begins, drivers might be facing in what analyst say the worst month for traffic to happen this year. The main cause of this traffic is said to be the holiday traveling that will be done during the Mid Autumn Festival, the National Day Holidays and the start of the new school semester.
Studies showed that the traffic usually starts to become heavy three or four days before the Mid Autumn Festival as residents are rushing to do their shopping, meet up with friends and attend gatherings. Paired with the start of the new semester traffic will definitely add more to the traffic jams on roads. During this time drivers are reminded of the possible traffic congestion that will happen on expressways especially during the days before the Mid Autumn festival and after. Roads leading to theme parks and business areas are also expected to be congested during the festivals.
Visitors are advised to go to these areas at different times to lessen the traffic and travel time that will be spend on roads especially during the evening rush hours. Studies have shown that the heaviest traffic jams usually happen in the city during the months of May, August and September.
