Motorists form orderly queues within marked lanes in bank holiday traffic chaos

BANK holiday traffic chaos has hit the UK, with tens of thousands of motorists following each other in neat lines at low speed while obeying all laws of the road. 

Observers struggled to describe the absolute mayhem on motorways into Cornwall and the Lake District, where cars moved slowly and maintained a safe distance from one another while not beeping their horns.

Joanna Kramer of Bristol said: “I’ve never seen anything like it, apart from a car park.

“Nobody can make sense of the pandemonium they’re seeing on the roads today, where volume of traffic has reduced speed while actually, if anything, diminishing confusion and the risk of collisions.

“It is total chaos. Please, if you value your safety, stay indoors.”
