Snow Paralyzed Traffic in Moscow

Snow Paralyzed Traffic in Moscow

Sleet fell in Moscow on Tuesday evening as winter weather moved across Russia. Wet roads that turned into ice rinks were processing by reagents. Unexpected snow has caused transport collapse in the city and drivers have been stuck in jams for many hours. The general speed didn't exceed 5 km/h. 

      Road services have been working all night, using a special equipment to prevent icing. The number of accidents has increased because many drivers haven't managed to prepare for the winter season – summer tires made cars uncontrolled.

      Car service centres will have more clients these days – it's time to adapt vehicles to new weather conditions.

      According to the forecast precipitation will continue until the end of this week.
