Eclipse traffic jams are already a thing

Solar Eclipse Draws Crowds To North Queensland Vantage Points

Cars are already jamming roads in some places as people get ready for the total solar eclipse on Monday. In Oregon, where the eclipse will first cross into North America at 1:17PM (our time), a five day music festival is already in progress, leading to huge traffic jams. According to, police nationwide are expecting a lot of traffic near the areas where the eclipse will be total. We will not see a total eclipse. Lansing will see 84% coverage of the sun at 2:24PM. A little further south, in Indianapolis, they’ll see 93% coverage. If you can make it to Evansville, Indiana, you’ll get 99% coverage.

And with people traveling to get in position for the eclipse, police in peak areas are warning motorists, “Don’t eclipse and drive”. Apparently it’s the newest distracted driving danger. And good Lord – don’t “eclipse and drive” and text and post photos during the eclipse. Just pull over – or find a big Walmart parking lot.

Or, just wait until April 8, 2024.
