Since Tuesday morning, the inhabitants of Warsaw and the surrounding area have been accompanied by heavy rainfall. They are beneficial for nature, but they do not facilitate movement. As our reporter reports, traffic jams are bigger than usual on the main streets of the capital.

Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians have been struggling with heavy rainfall since morning, which does not facilitate movement. – After long weeks without heavy rainfall, the morning greeted residents with quite heavy rain. It is certainly needed and will certainly help to maintain greenery, while heavy rain makes it difficult for cars to drive, traffic jams are bigger than usual on the main streets. This includes Czerniakowska, Aleje Jerozolimskie, Prymasa Tysiąclecia, route S8 and the Southern Bypass of Warsaw between the Opacz and Chopin Airport junctions, reports Artur Węgrzynowicz, tvnwarszawa.pl reporter.

– Cyclists and pedestrians are in the most difficult situation, although many of them are dressed in special raincoats and decided to travel – added the reporter.

On rainy days, people who normally travel by public transport or bicycles choose a car. One of the largest traffic jams are formed in cities during intense morning or afternoon downpours.
