Traffic in France 2014August

August is the heaviest traffic month in France. That's mostly because of the 'chassé-croisé' when Juillettistes (those taking their vacation in July) and Aoûtiens (those taking their vacation in August) crisscross on French roads. The chassé-croisé takes place this year on the first weekend of August and means Saturday the 2nd is rated Black - very heavy traffic.
