Whitsun sun causes record-breaking traffic jams

Record-breaking traffic jams were formed on Monday evening as thousands of people endeavoured to get home from beaches and nature spots around the country.

There was a 26 kilometre queue between Vlissingen and Bergen op Zoom and 20 kilometre jam on the A28 between the Veluwe national park and Amersfoort, reports motoring organisation ANWB.
Between Balk and Sloten traffic was so heavy that the ANWB advised drivers to avoid the route.
Many of the traffic jams were made worse by visitors returning home from various events, such as the 11 city cycling race in Friesland and the Pinkpop festival.
