"Return to your homes"

This is the view from one of our windows this morning. According to the radio, the Highways Agency are saying "don't take your car unless your journey is absolutely necessary." I'm all for cutting down on car use, but what does that sentence actually mean? Has the Chief Executive of the Highways Agency gone to work today? Or the Director General of the BBC? Or everybody in Whitehall? Or have they thought, no, I'll stay at home and work on line?
