Nothing, I imagine, compared to what the whole country will look like tomorrow.

This is (or was, depending on your time zone) the last work day in June. Doesn't that make this weekend the first "grand départ" ?

Vive la France ! [rolleyes]

http://www.bison-fute.equipement.gou...resse-r97.html

"Comme chaque année, l’axe routier menant du nord de la France à la Méditerranée connaît à l’arrivée de l’été, une circulation plus importante en raison de l’affluence des nombreux conducteurs étrangers d’Europe du nord attirés par les conditions climatiques plus favorables du sud de la France."

"As is true every year the highway corridor leading from the North of France to the Mediterranean experiences, at the beginning of summer, an increase in traffic due to the many foreign drivers from northern Europe attracted by the more favorable climatic conditions of southern France."

My translation, and my underlining. Of course, no one's passing through southern France to, say, Spain or Italy....

The French go on vacation later than most Benelux/Germany/Scandinavian countries. Most of them do settle in Southern France as Spain beyond Catalonia is generally considered to be beyond driving range for family vacations.

Why Dutch travel by car across Europe more often than other Europeans?

That's the Boulevard Périphérique, right? How bad is congestion there outside rush hours and during weekends?

yes. there's almost no congestion in August, when these photos were taken. and normally you don't get stuck outiside rush hours, it's dense, but fluid (travel speed from 40-80 km/h)
