The Friday night rush
How far can you get in an hour?


When your Roach starts raving on about a Job you MUST Apply for, Its worth thinking about Travel Times;
This could be an eye-opener!


Traffic jams on a Friday afternoon always seem to be the worst of the working week - as daily commuters are joined by those heading for a weekend getaway.

But how far can motorists get in an hour on a typical Friday?

And does leaving later - to avoid the worst queues - make that much of a difference?

Take a scroll through these maps - created by mapping and analytics software company Esri UK - which show driving distances from 10 of the busiest city centres

I've had this argument with roaches many times. Yeah they'll look up on travel times if you argue it's outside my travel distance, but only go by the average travel time, not taking into account that during morning/evening rush hour it'd take me much longer if I travel the only (cheapest) way they want me to, which is by bus. When my travel time was restricted to 1 hour and I was put on a course I told her it would take much longer than 1 hour, but when she looked online it stated 49 minutes. I told her yes that's probably after the rush hour but as I had to be at the course for 9am I'd hit the rush hour at the worst possible time. I live near a major motorway and all roads used by the bus route are totally full between 7-10am... But she still insisted that it fell under 1 hour so I HAD to attend or face being sanctioned.... :angry:

I`ve came across unexpected road works in the past as well when making journeys I wasn`t aware of. Mainly when traveling to the City centre where I don`t tend to go very often as I live nearer a closer town where my job centre is located. So a 20 minute bus journey one way can easily turn into 45 minutes just to get to the bus station. And I`m not sure it`s reasonable for us to know about non advertised road closures or emergency water/gas leaks! We are miracle workers don`t you know...
