BRENNER PASS, Austria (WHDH) — Winter arrived early in Austria, but it wasn’t exactly welcomed.
Traffic came to a complete standstill on a highway connecting Austria to Northern Italy.
The unexpected snowfall meant drivers were unprepared without any winter equipment.
The country has met conditions like this in the past as a law requires all cars to have winter tires by November 1.
