Last year there were traffic jams on the German autobahn for a total length of 450,000 kilometers. This adds up to a total of 185,000 hours for the driver.
Last year there were traffic jams with a total length of 450,000 kilometers on the German autobahn. As can be seen from the ADAC's 2011 traffic jam balance presented on Friday, there was a total traffic jam duration of 185,000 hours. That means 21 years of downtime and senseless waiting, according to the automobile club.
The congestion balance shows that the German motorway network is massively reaching its limits and needs to be expanded at particularly stressed sections. "If the motorways are to regain their efficiency, the expansion of the motorway sections that are particularly prone to congestion must finally be tackled with vigor," says ADAC Vice President for Transport Ulrich Klaus Becker. "It cannot be that of the 2,200 kilometers of autobahns that, according to the requirement plan for the federal highways, are to be urgently expanded between 2001 and 2015, only 35 percent have so far been realized."
North Rhine-Westphalia particularly affected by traffic jams
The motorways A 1 to A 9 were particularly affected by traffic jams. The ADAC recorded around 95,000 traffic jams with a traffic jam duration of around 100,000 hours and a total length of 261,000 kilometers. The top position among the motorways is the A5 Darmstadt - Basel. Here the traffic stood still for around 8,300 hours. The front runner in terms of traffic jam length was the A 8 Karlsruhe - Munich - Salzburg with 31,000 kilometers. From the eastern area of the A 8 between Munich and Salzburg alone, 20 traffic jams with a length of 30 kilometers and more were reported.
Of all 16 federal states, North Rhine-Westphalia suffers particularly from traffic jams. In the most populous federal state, traffic jams with a length of 139,000 kilometers were counted. You will receive information on all current traffic jams on the German motorways
