Heavy Snowfall Disrupts Traffic In Yerevan

YEREVAN (RFE/RL)–Armenia’s first heavy snowfall of this year caused dozens of minor car accidents in Yerevan and briefly disrupted traffic in and outside the capital on Tuesday.

The snowfall began early in the morning and continued throughout the day. Some of the city’s main thoroughfares were blocked by traffic jams in the morning and at noon, with municipal authorities struggling to quickly clear all roads of snow and ice. Most of them became passable later in the day.

There was also a major disruption in public transport during the morning rush-hour. Many pedestrians and drivers are complaining that the municipality failed to adequately prepare for the snowfall.
