Zapping Auto Moto Renault Rafale: first contact with the large SUV cut from the Losange
Has the solution to reducing traffic jams in Paris finally been found, while everyone was expecting the opposite? It seems, in fact, that the farmers’ blockades have had a beneficial effect on traffic congestion in Île-de-France.
Thus, the traffic jams have decreased more or less significantly in recent days while farmers blocked the main roads. There were up to 300 km of traffic jams this Tuesday. This while they reached nearly 500 km last week, according to TomTom.
Still according to TomTom, traffic congestion climbed a little beyond 50% during rush hour on Wednesday morning. Usually it is not less than 80%.
Similar situation this Monday January 29 and Tuesday January 30, as indicated by the company BFMTV. “On Monday and Tuesday of this week, the congestion level reached 60% during rush hour, in the morning. A drop of 30% compared to last week.”
Traffic is lower than usual
The Île-de-France Regional Roads Directorate (Dirif) also noted, via its Sytadin barometer, an evolution in the situation. Namely “low” traffic this Thursday, during off-peak hours, compared to usual data. 70 km of traffic jams were noted, compared to 100 km on average at 3 p.m.
Thursday morning, during rush hour, was also conducive to a reduction in traffic. If the traffic was at its “normal” amplitude, with barely more than 300 km around 9 a.m. Generally, this is around 330 km.

To sum up
The farmers’ blockades have had a heavy effect on traffic jams. Far from making the situation worse, they made it possible to more or less relieve congestion on many routes at the start of the week compared to what was recorded the previous week.
