Echoing the message of the Romanian media, Radu Rizea of Hotnews.ro wrote this on March 28:
The already impossible traffic in Bucharest will become purely hellish during the NATO Summit…
But it looks like the media got it wrong again.
Nicole, a Romanian professional working in downtown Bucharest, reported this (RUM) on her blog, Nicole Incorporated: Made in Romania, today:
Residents and businesses feared the worst traffic ever because of the NATO summit. […] It turns out that traffic wasn't bad. After listening to the discouraging morning traffic report on the radio, I was surprised to find traffic was lighter than usual (like a quiet Sunday) – maybe since so many people were afraid of the traffic and stayed home or went on holiday.
I have overcome the fears inspired by the media lies. I'm not going to listen to the news anymore. Who would?
