FORECAST OF 2017 TRAFFIC
August, time of holidays and, time of great exodus.
For many, the moment of the long-awaited holidays is approaching. Often, however, the journey, for someone, turns out to be a real nightmare.
Interminable queues at motorway toll booths. Hot. Afa. Kilometers of traffic.
Austostrade for Italy, as per tradition, he has drawn up his personal ranking with the 2017 traffic forecasts. For each day of the month, three different time bands, and the related "vignette". A valid support for those who get ready to leave for 2017 holidays.
