Beware of traffic jams on the roads of France! According to Bison Futé, traffic could total between 600 and 1000 km of traffic jams this Saturday August 6, 2022. The day is also classified as red in France.

While the summer holidays are in full swing, the French are migrating to new horizons. This Saturday, August 6, 2022we witness on the roads a day classified red in the direction of departures, according to the website of smart one. The greatest difficulties are expected in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpeswhere the flag is black.

While in the morning, we already count more than 200 km of traffic jams all over France, smart one announced that a peak at 600 km is predictable, and until 1000km if the situation gets worse. For motorists who dream of vacations, we must therefore arm ourselves with patience: the road will be long ! Especially for those present on the A7 motorway. In previous weeks, when the traffic jams were comparable, it took almost 4h25 to cover the road between Lyons and Orange in the direction of departures. On the A10 between Paris and Bordeauxsame observation with repeated slowdowns and travel times extended from 3 to 8 hours between the two cities.

This Sunday, August 7, the traffic looks much less dense. Bison Futé announced “usual” traffic in the direction of departures and arrivals and the day is classified green. Good luck if you take the road!
