It was pretty bleak out there this morning and that had its impact on the situation on our roads. Road accidents hampered traffic in many places. On the E17 motorway a car crashed into a concrete mixer outside De Pinte.
Drivers were urged to slow down and keep their distance given the slippery conditions. An accident on the Ostend Brussels at the Groot-Bijgaarden interchange led to severe disruption.
By 8AM drivers were stuck in jams on 360km of road. The figure is a high one, but not exceptional.
