Rush hour traffic in Lancaster is well documented as causing road misery for many motorists.

And new figures suggest that drivers’ complaints are not without merit, as they show the city’s rush hour traffic is the second slowest in the country.

Only Westminster in central London has slower average speeds during “peak times” than Lancaster, according to analysis by Direct Line Drive Plus.

Average rush hour speeds for Lancaster have been charted at 10.88mph, with Cambridge in third at 11.3mph and Hereford at 11.49mph.

Peterborough and York have the fastest rush hour speeds.

Overall, the typical rush-hour traffic slows speeds down by an average of 3.6mph.

Thursdays, rather than Mondays or Fridays, appears to be the worst day for congestion.
