The already impossible traffic in Bucharest will become purely hellish during the NATO Summit. In order to avoid as many problems as possible, administration and state employees (except doctors, firemen, ambulance services or such) will have the day off. Bucharest citizens are constantly advised to avoid the Bucharest central areas and, if possible, to leave the city for a short vacation. HotNews.ro presents you with the complete list of restrictions and rules during the summit.


During 2-4 April 2008 certain traffic restrictions will be imposed so as to ensure proper traffic conditions for the official convoys participating at the NATO Summit, as follows:

- a single lane will be delimited for the movement of the official convoys from the Henri Coanda International Airport to the Parliament House. The delimitation of the lane will involve additional traffic signs, and driving on this lane will be forbidden;
