The day of Saturday August 5 promises to be the worst day of the summer on the roads of France, in particular on the motorways and seaside roads. By consulting the details of the Bison Futé forecasts, we obtain valuable clues on the timetables absolutely to be avoided.

If you’re planning on hitting the road this Saturday, it’s best to hit the mark, both in terms of timing and the routes taken. Bison Futé is not going too far when presenting its forecast for Saturday August 5: it will quite simply be the worst day of the summer on the roads, with black in the direction of departures and orange in the sense of feedback.

As you will have understood, many French people have opted for this weekend when starting or continuing their holidays and the roads to the seaside will be particularly busy. By looking at the details of Bison Futé’s forecasts, we get some clues to keep in mind when planning your departure. We have compiled and selected them for you below:

It is therefore difficult to avoid any traffic jams this weekend, especially if you are heading south. There are alternative routes. Bison Futé sees only two particularly busy national roads this Saturday: the N165 between Nantes and Quimper from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and the N205 towards the Mont-Blanc Tunnel with saturated traffic from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The other option, rarely possible for those who rent accommodation, is to postpone their departure. Sunday will be much calmer with orange in the direction of departures and green in the direction of returns.
