Traffic congestion.

1997 was Melbourne's second year of Formula One Grand Prix. There was a transport strike and the local population had to walk or drive their own cars and use non-public means of travelling. The 1997 Australian Grand Prix was won by David Coulthard followed by Michael Schumacher in second place.
