Snow situation in Prague

Heavy snowfalls have caused many accidents, injuries and troubles in the Czech Republic. There were long traffic jams on Czech highways, especially between Prague and Brno. Tens of truck drivers fell asleep while waiting for the road to be cleared off snow. Their vehicles finally made a 20-kilometer-long file.

Workers of road administration have already spread more then 3 000 tons of salt on the roads in Prague. Still, there were many accidents, mostly due to the fact that drivers did not use the winter tyres. Fortunately, one one was badly injured. More often, people were injured on slippery pavements. Physicians had to treat twisted ankles, broken legs, arms, injured backs and heads.

Also people using public transport had to wait up to 1 hour for the delayed vehicles. Now the situation is getting better, since there is no new snow falling any more. Most of Prague’s roads are passable. The meteorologists expect cold weather until the end of this week with occasional snowfalls, from Tuesday the temperatures can reach up to 5˚C (41˚F).
