Horrible traffic because of ordinary rain


Recommended Posts

This morning, we had 630 km of traffic jams in our little country which measures less than 400 km north-south and 200 km east-west.

The reason? Rain. Just normal rain - not even a torrential downpour or a monsoon. Roads were not closed, and nothing flooded. The problem was just people who would normally take a bicycle, or walk to a bus stop or train station now all took the car. In addition, people generally drive a little more careful in bad weather.


A normal morning rush hour will have about 150-200 km of traffic jams.


How bad is traffic where you live?
