Traffic in Lynn

16th September 2016

First of all I'd like to say my thoughts go out to all involved in the incident that took place on the A149 yesterday evening and no matter how much stress and how late it may have made anyone else it's nothing compared to what happened to those involved.

I would like to make a plea to anyone else like myself who did find themselves stuck in the traffic however.  As you will have spotted it's very easy for Lynn to become a 'Car Park' when something like this happens, it's not helped by impatient drivers blocking exits, texting on their on the phone and generally being impatient.  I saw two if not three near misses through people texting, barging through tiny gaps and generally getting agitated with the traffic.  If somehow 'one in, one out' could be a law I believe the traffic situation last night could have eased much quicker, but as I'm sure you've felt yourself, in your mind you've been stuck for 60 minutes and you just wanna get home, stopping to help someone who may have been in the queue for just five minutes is something you just won't do.

What does amaze me though is just how bad it gets, I travel from Coventry in just over two hours and 30 minutes, yet it took just short of two hours to get from KLFM to Gaywood.
