Also with the Auto you can now move freely again. Many people are now driving back with the car to get to work, but this could lead to particularly large traffic jams.
cities in Germany will be revived, and people are increasingly out and about. Many workers no longer need to remain in the home office and can get back to work. However, this leads to peak hours and volume of increased traffic.

Due to the Coronavirus-distance regulations is the public TRANSPORT in many cities is still severely limited and could not go longer with a full load. Add to this that many people eat on public transport, because of a possible risk of Infection. Therefore, the ADFC feared that people rely increasingly on other means of transport and more and more will be in your own cars on-the-go. This would even affect hundreds of thousands of public TRANSPORT users.
ADFC-managing Director Burkhard Stork said in a press release: "If now the mass arrest of the former public TRANSPORT users in the car, comes to Germany to a standstill. Even before the crisis, nothing more went into the rush hour almost. This will be worse if it manages to motivate a lot more people for the mobility by bike or on foot ."
So no Super-jams , should go to the citizens, so prefer to walk or ride a Bicycle. In order to bring the people to the cities do something about it.
