What began around Bad Tölz, was in the direction of Kochel - and Walchensee not better. From morning until the early afternoon, the traffic also was backed up about to Kochel at the lake – coming from the North from the commercial area of Pessenbach, coming from the West up over Schlehdorf. These jams have tried numerous drivers, to handle the dirt roads and side streets in residential areas. The police have been able to prevent this behavior, according to the wood but at least partially. "Since neither children nor elderly residents expected with through traffic, it was sometimes really dangerous."

Residents were pots, trash cans and flowers to the outside, so that at least the roads remained to their houses free. According to wood's conception many take a ticket in the purchase: "If one is already so long in a traffic jam, then the few euros are damn well already."+ at a distance is impossible: On the banks of the Walchsee lake, numerous recreation cavorted on Friday at the end.©Water rescue
