"the Snow fell – and now, around two million motorists get out in christmas traffic."
"And they are more or less experienced riders."
"– the Weather can be very local, there are many not accustomed to. It can be the difference of a hundred metres, from the glashalt to pretty safe and nice to drive, warns Bengt Olsson at the Swedish transport administration."
"Last year died nine people in the traffic between the 22 december and tjugondag Knut. During the same period occurred 525 road accidents."
"this year, the temperature in large parts of Sweden sticking around for the sneaky zero, just as the christmas traffic pulls in the time."
"– this means that It will be halkfläckar both here and there. It is best halkbekämpat on the main roads, which has been running up the surface of the road and the salt has been able to work well. It is always a bit safer, but when the temperature goes up and down, it means that there will be a bit tricky during the morning and evening. But also in the shadows, under bridges, on the heights and in the hollows and in the vicinity of watercourses, for example, where it can be halkfläckar, " says Bengt Olsson at the Swedish transport administration."
"– the Weather can be very local, there are many not accustomed to. It can be the difference of a hundred metres, from the to be glashalt to be pretty safe and nice to drive."
"The first big day of travel is calculated to be in the morning, Friday. According to the Swedish transport administration, begin car journeys around 11 in the morning and then traffic increases up to 18-19 in the evening, and then thinned out. "
"On Saturday is expected the drivers sit behind the wheel at 10-11 o'clock. Forward to the around the clock 18 in the evening there will be a lot of traffic on the roads."
"– You must be prepared there will be queues out from the metropolitan areas. It doesn't matter if it's Stockholm, Gothenburg or Malmö or some other bigger society, that is the question, " says Bengt Olsson."
"trying To trick their way past the queues by driving the smaller roads in order to arrive faster, he thinks not. It is the main roads."
"– Yes, I think that you should choose the main roads when you go somewhere, they are best halkbekämpade and where it flows. And hold you just the speed, or lower the speed and keep the distances, so it is absolutely the best to go."
"– to relax and let it take the time it takes. The impact of the collision on the people is tough, we can reduce the speed by one mile in an hour so we will save 15 lives, " he says."
