Two separate crashes have caused traffic chaos on major Brisbane commuter routes on Tuesday morning, with collisions in the city's north and south causing significant delays.

Thus, many people turn to driving their own cars which can cause a heavier traffic flow. This often includes accidents, with traffic slowing down even on roadsides physically separated from the crash location. ^ "Istanbul drowning in traffic chaos , report announces - LOCAL".
