Traffic jams over 500km

Snow in Brussels

Snow brings traffic chaos, and this is not limited to Britain. It has been snowing quite heavily in Belgium, and this has resulted in a series huge traffic jams, because some roads and lanes were closed. At one point, the total length of traffic jams amounted to over 500km, which is much longer than the distance between Brussels and Paris. Trains and flights have also been cancelled. With snow forecast for tomorrow, more chaos is likely to follow.
