Traffic jam


Therefore it’s important to pay attention and heed some advice for a safe finish.

Whether we go for long or shorter trip we care about the capability of jams forward. We can check it on the Internet for example – on utinform.hu site or other road monitoring sites. Or let’s begin the journey earlier or we calculate a longer travel time.

In the summer the road restoration work can lead to plug, about these we should also get information ahead.

If we go for a long trip, look for alternative options in addition to the primary road line. An accident on the highway can stop the traffic for several hours, because it is not possible to turn back, we can continue along and turi the next exit to an another route. That is why we have to look for other routes before departure, on which, if the highway may be closed or traffic diverted, we can take us to our destination.

A traffic jam make people frequently violent, pushing the horn, trying to intrude in front of other motorists, overtaking on the emergency lane. Be prepared – the music, plural reduce stress caused by the situation.

Be sure to begin the trip with a full tank, and take water with us.

Let us books, magazines so that we can reserve ourselves during the wait. If we are traveling with children, bring them toys, books, etc ..

If we go to a place for an agreed time, call and inform them that we will be alte due the traffic jam.

Move slowly and keep more distance.

But the most important – avoid the nerves.
