Are you legally bound to stop? If not, I'm going to tell them to get stuffed.

i wouldn't think so as you are not being pulled over for the police to question you or arrest you on suspicion of anything, so honestly you are not breaking the law.

from what i read it is the police telling you stop, so you will have to stop, but if its not the police questioning you you don't have to answer any questions given to you.

i think the police are there to ''keep the peace'' as well as intimidation.

Is it a Good idea to let everyone know these details?
If people change their usual daily route to avoid being delayed this will skew the information needed to improve the road system.
Not a lot of joined up thinking I'm afraid.

It will at least give people the option of changing their route or leaving earlier. These have caused disruptions to the roads, all because the planning behind this was poor.

Seeing Malpas road is on the list, will just divert drivers down the carriageway and bypass the chaos. Many other routes may record lighter than usual traffic, while the routes around the checkpoints will obviously see more.

And if the company who's implemented the census finds out that the argus has published this information, and thus influenced car journeys, the argus will find themselves in court and being told that they'll be paying for a new census. Muppets
