The inconvenience of winter

The months of January 1963, February 1979, March and November 2005, and January 2013 brought particularly severe winter weather. If you were out in your car when the weather hit, it soon became clear that there was no way to continue. Some people had to dig their cars out of snow drifts almost a metre thick. People were left stranded with their vehicles and were stuck for eight hours in the dark on the Veluwe or in the worst congestion ever seen in the Netherlands, with traffic queues stretching over 1,000 kilometres in total. In these conditions weak car batteries naturally stopped working. Handbrakes froze and door locks jammed. The breakdown services were extremely busy on these days too, of course, which meant it took them a long time to reach stranded drivers. Cars and snow: never a good combination.
