Over the weekend, three feet of snow fell on Russia between St. Petersburg and Moscow, causing a 125-mile traffic jam. Some motorists have been stuck on Highway M-10 for three days. According to the Huffington Post, it took the average truck 13.5 hours to get through the jam.
A representative for the State Automobile Inspectorate said, “Travel remains stop-and-go for a stretch of between 135 and 190 kilometers (84-118 miles) on M-10 in Tver Region. One lane in each direction is clear of snow. Trucks are moving at roughly 5-10 kilometers per hour (3-6 mph),” the Huffington Post reported.
