Rush Hour
A RUSH HOUR ( American English
American English
, British English
British English
) is a part of the day during which traffic congestion on roads and crowding on public transport is at its highest. Normally, this happens twice every weekday—once in the morning and once in the afternoon or evening, the times during which the most people commute . The term is often used for a period of peak congestion that may last for more than one hour. The term is very broad, but often refers specifically to private automobile transportation traffic , even when there is a large volume of cars on a road but not a large number of people, or if the volume is normal but there is some disruption of speed. By analogy to vehicular traffic, the term INTERNET RUSH HOUR has been used to describe periods of peak data network usage, resulting in delays and slower delivery of data packets

, since they are members of the UNECE. European main international traffic arteries are defined by ECE/TRANS/SC.1/2016/3/Rev.1 which consider three types of roads: motorways , express roads , and ordinary roads. In most countries, roads carry the European route designation beside national road numbers. Other countries like Belgium

Driver Location Signs
DRIVER LOCATION SIGNS are signs placed every 500 metres (550 yd) along each side of English motorways, and some other major English roads, to provide information that will allow motorists to know their precise location. Only roads in England feature these signs; they are not found on roads in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. This information might be useful in the event of an emergency or breakdown. They were first introduced in 2003, and they complement distance marker posts (small roadside posts used for road maintenance and administrative purposes). Both types of sign display a unique location number. The number, although given without units, is the distance in kilometres from a designated datum location for the road. While the driver location signs are metric , other road signs throughout the UK use imperial measurements (miles and yards)
