Crazy Exodus Jam

The sibs and I decided to head home last night after work for the long weekend. As with all long weekends, the exodus usually starts on Friday nights with most city folk heading out to their hometowns or holiday destinations. So we were prepared for some traffic congestion of some sort. What we weren't prepared for, however, was a terrible crawl that inched all the way down to the toll booth on the highway. It took us a total of an hour just to crawl 10km!
The odd thing was, after we cleared the toll booth, the roads suddenly cleared and we were able to merrily speed all the way down! This was quite odd as usually there will be little congested stretches in the usual parts of the highway where the road narrows.
So where did everyone and all the cars disappear to?!
