Farmers’ protest in Stuttgart

Significant traffic disruption is expected across Germany on Monday, Jan. 8, as a result of protest actions by farmers against policy proposals by the federal government.
Actions in the Stuttgart region will take the form of tractor convoys as well as stationary rallies with up to 100 vehicles, according to currently available police and media reports. Particular disruption is expected along federal highways (B-roads) 10, 14, and 27, but other roads may also be affected.
Please drive with extra caution and allow for the possibility of extended commute times and impacts to duty bus schedules.
