That Friday feeling

Traffic is a strange thing. I’m unfortunate enough that my 30 mile commute requires me to take the M4, or one of a number of similar, parallel roads, all of which get jammed up far too easily. Most mornings the motorway is busy, as is the exit sliproad in to Bourne End where I work. Whilst I struggle to make sense of this (why does every man and his dog want to go to Bourne End?) the weirdness is in how busyness changes across the week.
 
Naturally on a Monday morning and Friday evening traffic chaos is above average, which makes sense as people travel home for the weekend on a Friday and back to work on a Monday, but why is there less traffic on a Friday morning? This morning it took me half as long to get to work as on this weeks wet Wednesday and there was barely any traffic anywhere. What’s that about?
