If you were just getting ready to take a drive into downtown Sofia, don't do it. A hellish traffic jam has blocked one of Bulgaria's capital main thoroughfares today. The broken traffic lights at the major crossroad at Petyo Yavorov Blvd and Simeonovsko shousse resulted in kilometre long queues of cars to and from Sofia downtown. The crossroad located near the Biological faculty of Sofia University is one of the main thoroughfares in the capital. Trucks, buses and cars were jammed for hours as there was no police officer to control the traffic. Heavy traffic is seen as one of the main problems of Bulgaria's capital. Poor infrastructure and unruly drivers are just a few of the troubles Bulgaria has to cope with to improve the road safety in the country.
