Drivers on Danish roads this summer set off in more traffic and longer travel time, because more and more people than usual are expected to keep the summer vacation in denmark as a consequence of the limited opportunities to travel out of the country during the coronakrisen.
It forecasts the Danish road directorate, according to a press release.
Especially on the main roads to and from the big sommerhusområder is a view of the extraordinary congestion.

The first big trafikbølge is expected to hit the road already on Friday afternoon, where the school summer holidays begin.
- And will likely continue for the rest of that weekend with the greatest risk for cows and extended travel time on Saturdays between 11.00 and 15.00. Through the rest of the summer holidays, this pattern will repeat itself - i.e. with an increased risk of queues and congestion on the roads during the weekends, especially Saturdays with ferietrafik across the country in both directions, writes the directorate.
