Are we not having the Stay at Home banner again at the top of the website like we did in the first lockdown ?

When I put the banner up the during the first lockdown it was to make sure that people knew. I expect that everyone knows now.

A banner at the top of the forum ain't gonna make any difference to those who don't.
And there seem's to be a lot of them this time last time there was a really noticeable reduction in traffic but this time I can't see any I haven't been in any towns to comment on them But whats it like where you all are ?

It was like the Marie Celeste in our nearest town the day after lockdown.

It probably still will be, I would think.
The current icy weather will also help to keep people indoors just now.

Drove to Edinburgh from Dunblane yesterday and the roads were busy not like in the first lockdown when the roads were eerily quiet.

Preston, Lancashire just like normal now but it was same as you in the first lockdown, eerily quiet and virtually empty roads.

I went out to collect a takeaway yesterday at around 1700 and took a route that would normally be hell. Pretty much drove straight through.

For anyone who knows Bristol, Filton Avenue heading towards the ring road and the road past Aviva (Stoke Giffors) towards Parkway station would both be crap at that time usually.

Crossed over the M6 a couple of times in the last 24 hrs and it still seems to be quite busy in the south Preston area, I don’t know if it’s my imagination but cars in particular appear to be driving faster.🤨

That`s my area, Penwortham, Lostock Hall, Bamber Bridge and Leyland, just as busy as ever.

Yes I had to go out yesterday and the roads were busier than last lockdown for sure as was the town (Barnard Castle). Its never proper busy around here but it was like being in one of those end of the world survivor type movies in March and April.

Here in East Sussex,the good news is that there is less traffic. The bad news is those people that are out are driving significantly faster.

The footpaths have become a problem. All the (other) pensioners walk most days, and they have turned them into quagmires. Wellies only.
