In the southwest, the vacation / ADAC congestion forecast for July 3 to 5 begins

Munich (ots) - Despite the exceptional situation caused by the corona pandemic, the ADAC is expecting numerous traffic jams on the third weekend of the summer vacation season. Both the north and the south of the country are likely to be at the same time. However, the dimensions of previous years will not reach the Corona traffic jams to a limited extent, according to the ADAC.

After all, holidaymakers from Rhineland-Palatinate, Hesse, Saarland, France and the north of the Netherlands are starting their holidays this weekend. The second week of the holiday begins in Berlin, Brandenburg, Hamburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Schleswig-Holstein and Denmark.

According to the ADAC, the main goal of vacationers is the German coasts and the Alps.

Even on the return motorways, the traffic does not flow smoothly, because the first vacationers are already on their way home. The additional truck holiday driving ban, which comes into force on Saturday, July 4, promises to make things a little easier, and is valid every Saturday from 7 a.m. to 20 p.m. until the end of August. In the wake of the Corona crisis, however, this does not apply in all federal states this travel season.

The ADAC assumes that this season, as a result of the Corona crisis, significantly more German car holidays will take place in their own country or in neighboring countries and fewer trips abroad by plane. However, many Germans are likely to be content with day trips and spontaneous short trips on their vacation.

There is a lot going on in Austria because of the start of the holiday, especially on the streets of the federal states of Burgenland, Lower Austria and Vienna. The problem routes include the Tauern, Fernpass, Brenner, Karawanken and Gotthard routes as well as the trunk roads to the Italian, Croatian and French coasts. At the borders with Denmark and between Slovenia and Croatia, waiting times can be expected due to intensive personal checks.
