Dealing With Congestion On Nottingham\'s Busy Roads

Like most cities, Nottingham has it's fair share of traffic congestion. According to the time of day, this can have a big effect on driver training and on driving tests in particular. Let's look at how best to deal with heavy traffic both on lessons and after the test has been passed.

Nottingham has seen a massive increase in car ownership in recent years. This is most evident in older parts of town where it is almost impossible to find a parking space. Such areas are no good to new learner drivers and so the instructor will need to drive to an area with less congestion to start the lesson. Most traffic jams are due to work and school related travel so it is best not to travel at these times if it can be avoided. Taking a driving test at these times does have it's advantages as being caught in traffic means that time ticks away and it would be hard to acquire driving faults when stationary. Examiners will be obliged to keep to quieter roads to avoid time being wasted.

If you are using a satellite navigation system be sure to programme the route leaving enough time to consider the route and plan for any congestion. Being stuck in traffic means that motorists become frustrated and are more prone to take risks such as late and hurried turns. If you turn off a road that is blocked the guidance system will re programme the route but be sure to check for no entry signs. Satellite navigation systems are notorious for sending people the wrong way down one way streets.

Mobile phones can be useful if you brake down or have to inform someone that you will be late. It is illegal to use mobile phones while driving even if you are stationary in traffic so if it is possible get a passenger to make the call for you.

Experienced motorists in Nottingham will teach you how to drive smoothly in heavy traffic. Always look well ahead and never rush up to a queue of traffic. By easing off the accelerator early you will often find that the situation has cleared and cars have started to move again before you get there, meaning you don't have to stop at all. The constant motion of the car will go a long way towards relieving the stress of city driving and save money on your fuel bill. This is something you will definitely get to practise during driving lessons Nottingham.

On some motorways you will come across temporary variable speed limits. Evidence shows that if traffic is kept moving at a constant speed then congestion is less likely to occur. Nottingham has a four lane motorway with these temporary speed limits shown on overhead gantries. Make sure you obey these limits and remain in the left hand lane unless overtaking.
