27 Jan 11 - Twelve hours. That's how long it took some people to get home using the George Washington Parkway Wednesday night.

Danielle Heard finally made it to her destination at 5:30 a.m. Thursday after leaving her Crystal City office at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday.

 She said traffic came to a halt on the road at about 5:15 p.m., and moved very little after that. 

 "People have begun to abandon their vehicles," she said. "When you finally do get some movement, you're driving around them, or around people who ran out of gas."

She said some people began walking out of frustration, while others decided to sleep in their vehicles.

Park Police said nearly 100 vehicles were abandoned on the Parkway overnight.

 Abandoned vehicles are scattered across the region, including on Interstate 270.
