On the road in France this summer?
To avoid long waits and traffic jams, try in particular to avoid Saturday 29th July (travelling from north to south) and 4th/12th/19th August, which are all ‘black days’ (circulation extrêmement difficile). August 19th is also expected to be the worst day to travel back from south to north.
Most Saturdays throughout July and August are classed ‘red’ (circulation très difficile) starting from 1st July, with the 14th, 15th and 16th July being a particularly busy weekend.
