Motorists experienced delays around Aberdeen this morning as pupils returned to school, prompting more cars to return to the roads.
Heavy rain and wet roads also added to the delays, with lengthy tailbacks reported on the A90, near the Exhibition Centre.
Motorists faced delays at the Haudagain Roundabout and on the Parkway as the increased volume of traffic resulted in increased delays and growing frustration.
Similar delays are expected throughout the rest of the week.
