I use AdBlock and I can see that a visit to their Hertford & Ware news page blocks 22 adverts! I really don't understand why organisations don't realise that loading a page with so many ads is counterproductive and drives people away - people who may never come back. You just have to look at The Mercury's outdated website and print edition to realise that their business model hasn't really kept up with the times.
Anywho, this is veering off topic.
As far as I know, the County Council still don't have traffic modelling software capable of understanding current and future traffic flows (just one of the things holding up the District Plan). It's going to end up like airport expansion, continually kicking the can down the road whilst the problem just gets worse and worse.
