Special care should be taken when traveling by road. The Directorate General of Traffic ( DGT) expected to carry about 15,000 vehicles between now and tomorrow the journey between Madrid and Lisbon. The proximity of cities means that, on this occasion, the A-5 will become the epicenter of the mass exodus.
