Where Did That Come From?

Filed under: — admin @ 10:13 pm

The snow returned to Dumfries last night, as if from nowhere, bringing the town to a grinding hault this morning. My question through isn’t so much about the snow, as the traffic. As usual, on a day when police would be advising people “only to travel their journey was absolutely necessary”, there were twice as many cars as usual out and about this morning. It took my bus, which I get at the same time every day, 30 minutes to complete the normal 15 minute journey from Georgetown, along the nose to tail Annan Road, and into the town. People coming to work from the other side of town had an even worse time of it, as Pleasance Avenue and Castle Douglas Road were tailed back and the traffic wasn’t moving. So where did all the extra trafic come from? I think there may have been new roadworks on St.Michael Street, but I’m convinced that some people just come out so that they can join the queues!
