Wet snow complicates traffic

Icy roads and continuing snow and sleet have been complication the situation on Czech roads since Saturday afternoon. On the pre-Christmas Sunday, otherwise known as the Golden Sunday, lorries and cars are standing in traffic on highways in Central and northern Bohemia and the Vysocina region. A number of cars have gone off the roads in a number of places. Authorities are warning drivers of more ice developing on the roads, and worsening visibility resulting from fog. In Brno, trains have been delayed because of snow clean-up on the tracks.
