How the hell am I going to avoid the worst of the rush hour traffic?

Travelling at rush hour probably won't help.

The secret of avoiding 5pm rush hour traffic on a Friday in and around london is more complex than how the memory is stored in the brain. Please try to keep to 1 mentally exhausting thread per week.

Don't travel at rush hour.

Words are a medium that reduces reality to abstraction for transmission to our reason, and in their power to corrode reality inevitably lurks the danger that the words will be corroded too. It might be more appropriate, in fact, to liken their action to excessive stomach fluids that digest and gradually eat away the stomach itself.

He won't have any London traffic to deal with.

Edit - I thought he said from Clitheroe to Brixton.

What I mean is, is there a way to minimise it?

I guess once I'm out of London and on the M4 it won't be tooo bad?!

Have a few pints before you set off. That should kill a bit of time.

Yes, people have already made that joke.

If I want to get there before midnight (and I don't have the day off work) I'm not entirely sure it's possible.

Good advice. Time doesn't seem to drag so much when you're pissed.

Do you really have to drive? Whenever I go up to Clitheroe I just go by train to Manchester then onto Burnley. You'd easily get there before midnight, although it would be expensive on the day of course.

And that's the reason I'm driving. We couldn't book train tickets in advance as we didn't know what I'd be up to job-wise.

Set off at 6pm. Will probably arrive the same time, but not spend so long stationary in traffic.

When visiting a mate in Croydon, sometimes used to go Purley-Epsom-Hampden Court-Staines-past the end of Heathrow runway-A4 as being closer in than the M25 and clearer than the South Circular. Heading out on the M4, you could then cut north on the A404 to the M40 and be away.

Clit. Funny innit.

I’m staying with friends a few miles outside Stafford tonight, breaking the journey up. We’re going to get right drunk tonight so I’m more nervous about the last 2 hours tomorrow tbh.

The M6 is a pig at the best of times, with all the roadworks.

Leave later. You'll probably get there around the same time if you're doing it in lighter traffic than if you left in rush hour traffic.

Have you considered flying from Stansted?

Do you *have* to go tonight? Could you get away with setting out at say, 6, tomorrow morning?

That’s really not a joke mate.
