Samedi noir
Black Saturday - Samedi noir is the worst traffic day of the year in France. It's the only black - very heavy traffic day, so the name - Samedi noir. It take place during the chasse-croise - when Juillettistes (those taking their vacation in July) and Aoutiens (those taking their vacation in August) crisscross on French roads. In 2014 Black Saturday is August 2nd.
