Keep your secrets, friends. That's the best advice we can give you about keeping your favorite roads traffic-free. Once the word gets out that a particular stretch of asphalt offers a challenging drive, you can all bet that every wannabe heel-toe hero in the area will descend upon it. We've seen it happen on hallowed turf like Rte. 129 in Tennessee, and now it appears that the Nürburgring is beginning to suffer the same fate. The track was recently so packed with drivers that a traffic jam ensued, turning the Green Hell into one giant lead-follow course.

Of course, a gaggle of bunched-up vehicles on what's supposed to be a no-holds-barred road course generates its own issues, as you'll see in the video after the jump. With cars careening toward slower traffic, one near-miss ensues when a Porsche 997 almost bounces off a Boxster. The Nürburgring's operators have officially raised lap prices in an effort to make the track safer for everyone. Hopefully those safety improvements will show up sooner rather than later. Hit the jump to see the traffic travesty on the Nürburgring for yourselves.
