Well technically, I think Mexico City is pretty far south, isn't it.

If you build more lanes they tend not to decrease congestion, they increase the number of cars that attempt to use it. In Toronto, we got a taste of that first hand when we widened our principal highway to 18 lanes. It filled up immediately and tops 420,000 cars/day rising to 500,000 at peak times. There were calls to widen it to 24, but there simply wasn't any room to do it.
