Taking the road a few hours away from the great crossover of holidaymakers can be stressful. And expensive! Both in terms of time and fuel, since traffic jams consume both. Therefore, underlines Le Figaro, it is important to take a number of precautions so as not to make the trip more painful than strictly necessary. So make sure you have had your car serviced, but also check the levels (engine oil, brake fluid, coolant, windshield fluid, etc.). Also check that your tires are properly inflated, otherwise you risk having a potential accident. Also take your vests and triangles on board, useful in the event of a breakdown, and some tools.

Naturally, it is also necessary to avoid overloading the vehicle with luggage or passengers and to attach them correctly, if they are children. Also remember, as much as possible, to take a break every two hours of driving… and to choose the right day of departure!

Like every year, Bison Futé has shared its provisional schedule of departures. Between the Julyists and the Augustians, the great crossover of the summer occurs, as usual, at the end of July. But which days should you avoid at all costs?

In 2022, therefore indicates the national traffic information center, three days appear particularly busy on the roads. These are Friday July 29, Saturday July 30 and Sunday July 31.

The day to avoid is therefore Saturday.
