These are the less boring traffic jams, at least there's some view:

There was a huge jam at the A44 near Wassenaar this morning at the traffic lights at the end of the highway.

Probably traffic avoiding the monster jam on the A4 caused by an accident...

60 traffic jams at the moment, totalling 350 kilometers of queue, mostly centered in the Randstad.

There was an incident on the A73 freeway south of Nijmegen last night. People started shooting at eachother with full automatic weapons, the freeway was littered with empty shells for miles, and some cars were loaded with bulletholes. They think it might have something to do with drugs. The A73 was closed almost the entire day.

People in the Netherlands should stop watching American movies.

People in the Hague should abolish all drugs, it only brings out the bad things in people
When I was in Grand Forks, BC, only a few kms away from the US border, I was told that it was an important town for the smuggling of drugs to the US, so when driving around there, you see lots of border guards patrolling around. Sometimes people get killed over there.

Yeah, you hear the craziest things about drugs here, about drug tourists who jump out of a 5 storey high window for no reason, or drugsrunners in Maastricht who drive with 120 km/h through residential streets and are not reluctant do hit other cars to evade the police.

Busy rushhour started early today. Now at 14.00 hrs, already 190 km of traffic jam. If you compare that to Germany, that would mean 1010 km of traffic jam in Germany if motorway lengths are compared. When counted to population, it would mean 954km.

I just saw lots of jams on the A2 southbound, between Abcoude and Breukelen. Northbound: no jams, so I was home quickly
btw, it is of course more than usual since Hanna has made landfall in the Netherlands

Yesterday was horrible... Especially the A12 was one big disaster. Took me 3:45h on just 170 kms.

This was rushhour yesterday. The morning rushhour wasn't much, but the evening rush started around 11 am and lasted until 8 pm. The first graph shows the number of traffic jams at each time, and the lower graph shows the total traffic jam length at each time.

Apparantly, there was a little error around 7 pm.

It seems like your drug-policity is too liberal - your policymakers smoke too much...

Ugly signage. Very bad. Yesterday was the second worst evening rush hour ever in NL
