Traffic chaos

Dear Editor,

The end of summer should mean less traffic on Algarve roads, right? Wrong! Getting to work now that kids are back at school is proving to be more tiresome than I thought.

Getting back home at the end of a long day, when all I want to do is put my feet up and relax while watching the crummiest show on TV, is equally as challenging.

If you’re unfortunate enough to have a school on your daily path and need to traverse it at its main opening and closing hours, expect to grind your way through arduous traffic.

Sleep-deprived parents, late-for-work nincompoops such as myself or the average Sunday-drivers on a Monday morning are bound to provide a challenge on your early-morning journey to get to your job. During these moments, however, one must not forget these wise words: Better safe than sorry.
