From an early hour on Saturday, December 22, the streets of downtown Valladolid were full due to the traffic caused by the unprecedented number of visitors that arrived to this “Magic Town”.
During most of the day, the traffic in the city center was saturated and despite the support of the Municipal Police, some Valladolid residents commented that this fact instead of improving the situation, made it worse.
The long lines of vehicles took several minutes to move and for this reason the police officers tried unsuccessfully to direct the traffic.
“I think it’s good that the police is trying to help, but since they have no experience with this kind of traffic jams, instead of helping they are making it worse,” said Valladolid resident Salvador González.
Gonzalez also stated that every year the traffic jams get worst in the main streets of the city.
“Most people go through the Center to get to the neighborhoods because in theory it’s faster, but during this time of the year, I think it’s more practical to go around the downtown area through secondary streets.”
The traffic jam peaked during the first hours of the morning until noon; and from 6 in the afternoon to 10 at night.
