Snowy weather caused a traffic nightmare on a 30 mile stretch of I-78 in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania. Vehicles were at a standstill at various spots along the roadway for 12 hours beginning Thursday afternoon. Conditions began improving toward the early morning hours on Friday.
Police drove on the opposite side of I-78, honking their horns, to wake up drivers who fell asleep in their vehicles. “Drivers, wake up! Traffic’s moving!” police shouted to drivers. Some drivers ran out of gas waiting for traffic to begin moving.
