I think traffic in a way looking at these pics can be seen as marxist's dream. it binds us no matter where we are from, all of us together suffer it, LOL.

As for traffic, london is terrible, absolutely terrible. Paris can be a ******* nightmare, Athens? less said the better. Infact all med cities are bad. Nice thought? Traffic gets worse every day/

Not the busiest highways in the world but meh...

Toronto



This is the GRANDDADDY of all Toronto congestion pictures.. SCROLL!
I didn't reduce it because it isn't big in file size... so even slow internet users should be able to handle it.

That's some crazy traffic!

However, sights like this are very common in Los Angeles, where freeways are often twice as wide.

If I could take a photo of my best sights, you will all be stunned without a doubt. Possible pics include the 405 looking south from the Getty, or the 5 freeway in some places in Orange County. IMO the best view of super-traffic probably is outside of Los Angeles, but in its vicinity: on the I-5 when it dips into a lagoon between Del Mar and La Jolla in San Diego. The view is horrific, but spectacular.

^ i believe the 405 is one of the busiest freeways in the united states in terms of number of cars on the road.

Tehran's traffic can be pretty mad.. during the obvious rush hours and also 'uptown' Tehran is gridlocked between 9pm and 12am because of people going to the recreation areas and 'places to be' or rather places to be seen at lmao

Heres one I found without really searching much

Driving in India is truly terrifying. About 1500 people die each day on india's roads which I personally think is insane.
Driving in England can also be pretty bad. Commuting from Leeds back to Nottingham on the M1 is a right bastard sometimes especially when there is an accident. Traffic jams can be 5-10 miles long if the accident is bad enough.
It's also a very dangerous part of the motorway as about a 30 mile stretch of it isn't lit up at all.
This doesn't rank as bad as other places but its still bludy annoying.

The speed limit is 50 mph because its right before Bay Bridge toll plaza... typical speed limits in the Bay Area are 65 mph.

Recently, there was an American mathematician who went to Vietnam and he wanted to construct a mathematical model for the traffic. Guess what, he was hit by a motorbike in Hanoi and now in critial condition .

This highway (401) in Toronto is always jammed... Just can't find a pictiure.

Traffic lights are everywhere but they couldn't help it or even make the situation more chaotic so they turn them off during rush hours. Nice scene yeah?
Here's a non-motorbike traffic in Vietnam:
