Passover vacationers not going anywhere fast with country jammed up

Roads in Israel are full to bursting, with traffic jams reported all over the country thanks to an especially heavy stream of Israelis traveling for Passover outings.

According to some reports, the traffic is among the worst in the country’s history, made by a perfect storm of great weather, the holiday, travel restrictions keeping Israelis from leaving the country, and a general opening up that has left the country nearly restriction free for the first time in months.

Cops have been called out in force to manage the traffic jams, according to Channel 12 news.

By the Sea of Galilee, authorities are asking would-be visitors to visit somewhere else, as their beaches are full.
