ABSTRACT
The author mulls over the chaos in Great Britain's travel industry. He contests that the country's transport passes a cold-weather version of meltdown due to the images of chaos that prompts transit passengers to avoid its travel operation. He remarks that one of the main reason why the transport system in the country falls periodically is because people enjoy an extraordinarily benign climate.
