The Weekly Roundup

Motorists are being urged to plan their August Bank Holiday journeys in advance, with the RAC predicting an extra 14 million drivers on the roads. The RAC says Saturday is likely to see traffic at its heaviest, with up to 2.6 million more motorists than usual on the UK's road network. Further spikes in traffic levels are expected on Sunday during the late afternoon and early evening as well as on Monday morning.

Also this week, Car buyers are to continue to be able to benefit from £5,000 off the cost of an electric car after the Government announced today it would extend the plug-in grant scheme. The financial incentive will continue to be available until at least February. The UK is now the fastest growing market for electric vehicles in Europe.
