a perfect opportunity NOT to go anywhere. Strikes me as quite a fuss. There's been enough notice to plan not to go anywhere

I'm not driving anywhere in North London on a Saturday afternoon - we've road works everywhere and today's outing (necessary) was a nightmare.

We had carmageddon here once, there were about 5 cars in front of me and 5 behind for a whole 20 kilometers...

It was hell

It was horrific, I honestly thought that there would a pile up at any minute

I mean you hear the stories of traffic chaos like this and people start pulling guns

It looks as if the whole thing went absolutely fine and people just stayed away! Makes sense really
