There were no major problems during the morning rush hour on Wednesday, the ANWB reports. Code yellow applied from Tuesday evening to Wednesday morning due to slippery roads. Accidents mainly happened on local roads.
The weather warning applied until 9 a.m. for the provinces of Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe, Overijssel, Gelderland, Utrecht, North Brabant and Limburg.
The slipperiness disappears during the morning. The KNMI advised road users to drive more slowly and keep a greater distance from others.
According to the ANWB, the slippery conditions did not cause any accidents on the highways on Wednesday morning. “Things are going very well,” says a spokesperson. Although there are a few more traffic jams than usual, it is always busier when it rains. The greater crowds cannot be attributed to slippery conditions.
There were a few accidents on Wednesday, but according to the ANWB, as far as is known, they were not related to slippery conditions. For example, the A28 from Amersfoort to Zwolle is closed before the Hattemerbroek junction, after a small truck overturned there.
Some slides in the evening and night
Traffic was affected by slippery conditions in some places on Tuesday evening and later at night. For example, according to the ANWB, there were a few slides on the A50 near Apeldoorn. There two vehicles collided. A truck also slid away and blocked a driveway. A recovery company had to pull the truck free.
Furthermore, in Groningen on Tuesday evening, a car skidded out of the bend due to slippery conditions near the Julianaplein junction on the A28. This is reported by the Dagblad van het Noord. The car was a total loss, but the driver was unharmed.
