Motor traffic for the second quarter of 1999 in Great Britain increased on the same level as in the same quarter in 1998. The increase in motor traffic includes car traffic and goods vehicle traffic which both increased by two percent and one percent, respectively. Traffic levels on both major non-built-up roads are estimated to have been six percent higher in the second quarter of 1999 than in the same quarter of 1998 resulting from depression in traffic levels in 1998 because of the poor summer weather of the year. Traffic on major built-up roads which is not particularly affected by summer weather patterns was about the same as in previous years.
