Has anyone noticed any difference this side of the shuck, our road doesn't seem as busy though it might only be wishful thinking on my part!

School's out!

Although I see more cyclists these days at rush hour times.... so maybe.

Not so much at school time -going or coming home-more after 6pm. I think a lot of people are beginning to think and plan their travel.

Ain't noticed anything here in the Emerald Isle...

School's out so it's better for me cycling to work but there's still wodges of FUVs and boy racers, council workers sitting in vans with engines running, people moaning about lack of car parking, travel agents busy, CO2 emissions climbing.

No, life as usual.

Having lived in Belfast for a year and then travelling to Ards everyday for work, I would have drove in the mornings. Then I blew a gasket in my car, during rush-hour over the Albert Bridge not a nice experience for a relatively inexperienced car driver and not much attuned to driving nuances.

From December 08 I used the bus to get to Ards. June 2008 I got a Belfast job but moved back home to near Dungannon, no keep my driving to the bare minimum to the bus station and back. The travelling sickens my head but at least I aint driving.

I truly believe that if the government introduced a decent rail service and subsidised it and had more places of work around train stations that the amount of traffic on the roads could be reduced.
