The image may make you smile, but the consequences could have been dramatic. This Saturday, a cow caused real chaos on the A2 motorway towards Amsterdam. The animal has indeed wandered between the bands, causing major slowdowns and therefore major traffic jams.
“It looks like the wild west”, comments the national traffic info. If people tried to catch the cow to shelter it, nothing worked. The animal was too fast for them and the competent authorities had no choice but to close two traffic lanes in the direction of Utrecht.
For the time being, the animal continues on its way, having already traveled two kilometres.
