In addition to our time and patience, traffic jams also take a big bite out of our gasoline or diesel tank. A car running and idling can spend almost a liter of fuel per hour. If we add the starts and stops of the vehicle to go forward meters, it is estimated that the fuel consumption of the car can skyrocket in a traffic jam up to 90% more than usual on roads or high-capacity roads. That is why it is convenient to plan the hours at which we are going to make the trip for the August holidays, especially if it coincides with the departure operation.

Therefore, before going on a trip on these holidays and in this second part of the summer, we must take into account at what times it is not recommended to travel. And it is that the DGT, with its second Operation Exit, foresees that during this weekend and the next few days the influx on the road will increase again.

For the moment and for this last weekend of July, taking into account that many drivers will return from their rest days, while others will take them for granted, the worst hours to travel will be those specified by the DGT.

The worst and best times to travel in August

Friday, July 28. The DGT advises against traveling in the exit direction of urban centers between 3:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. on the same day. During the same strip and on those same roads, the DGT will eliminate traffic control. Saturday, July 29. The worst hours are expected in the same direction of circulation in the morning, between 8:00 and 15:00. Similarly, towards the evening, an increase in traffic could be seen in the direction of return from the coastal areas. Sunday, July 30. Traffic will be mostly in the direction of returning to the cities. It will be necessary to avoid driving in this direction between 5:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. that same day, although we can also find small delays in the early hours of the morning when leaving large cities, since some drivers will take advantage of it to make short breaks. of July. A slight influx on the highway is also expected, greater than usual. General traffic is expected between 8:00 and 18:00 in both directions of traffic.

What time is the best time to travel on a weekend in August?

This same scheme of unfavorable hours for traveling could be repeated during the rest of the weekends in August. Thus, the best hours to travel will always be those outside of weekend days.

Likewise, if on days when there is more traffic it is possible to leave early in the morning instead of waiting for the worst hours in the afternoon and the turns can also be brought forward, we will be able to escape traffic jams and delays. . Obviously, the appropriate thing will be to consult the forecasts of the DGT regarding traffic.
