Movement by car was virtually impossible in Sofia today as thousands of vehicles remained stuck in traffic jams throughout the day.

Tram and bus services failed and passangers were stranded on bus stops.

Many people then decided to try the metro but it got so crowded people were pressed against the doors like in Tokyo.

Traffic police say more than 1,000,000 cars go out on the streets every day.

Public transport also fails because of the huge number of passangers at stops every day.

Wow...

And I thought we had traffic problems...

It has been proved again. Taking a bike to work can relieve congestion ;)
