The tvnwarszawa.pl reporter covered the 350-meter section from the intersection of Aleja Jana Pawła II and Złota to the exit from the Czter 30-year roundabout in Aleje Jerozolimskie for half an hour. The intersection was jammed by drivers who entered it and were unable to exit later.

The recording was made on Wednesday after 5 pm. Reporter tvnwarszawa.pl Artur Węgrzynowicz, driving along Aleja Jana Pawła II from the ONZ roundabout, wanted to turn left into Aleje Jerozolimskie, towards the Dmowskiego roundabout. In a traffic jam, he was already at the junction of John Paul II with Złota. It was 17.17. He did not manage to leave the roundabout until half an hour later – at 17.47. – It took me 30 minutes to cover the 350-meter stretch – summed up Węgrzynowicz.

– At that time, while still standing at the end of the cork, I heard a regular honking. There were several times when the green light was on and none of the drivers could pass. Alone, when I was near the traffic lights, I stood there for three cycles of green light. I could not move because the roundabout was blocked all the time by drivers who entered the intersection and then could not leave it. I also saw people who at the last moment tried to avoid the traffic jam and squeezed into the queue of cars at the front, at the pedestrian crossing – described our reporter.


The reason for the traffic jam was not a broken traffic light, a collision or an accident. – The drivers themselves, with their behavior, led it to this situation. People who were unable to leave the roundabout were constantly entering the roundabout and thus blocking each other. There were even situations when for a long time everyone, the entire roundabout, was blocked by drivers standing across the road and blocking each other – reported Węgrzynowicz.

He added that city bus drivers also had a problem with crossing – they tried to bypass the traffic jam by turning left from the straight ahead, but it did not help much, because they were also blocked by other drivers who did not manage to leave the intersection on the red light. There were also situations when cars blocked the track and the driver had a problem with passing through.
