Today Metro Schools started back, clogging up the streets, especially around schools:
Metro schools started back in Nashville….. Hello traffic. @NashTheTraffic

And to make matters worse, there was a fatal crash on I-40 this morning. The single-vehicle crash, which gave the driver fatal injuries, reduced the inbound side to a single lane near White Bridge Pike for the morning rush hour. Traffic is backed up at least 8 miles.
And what backs up cars also backs up the buses. My own bus got delayed in traffic around an elementary school this morning. Another bus driver said that many buses are running behind schedule because of the school traffic and I-40 accident.
Drivers are none too happy about the delays:

It blows my mind how much the Nashville traffic changes and gets worse once the kids are back in school
