I'll have to nominate DC again, especially in the VA suburbs. I've been in traffic jams at 1pm on a sunday afternoon! I wouldn't say DC has bad public transit however. The Metro rail was really easy to use to get downtown. Also, by contrast, I think LA isn't nearly as bad as people say it is. Of course there are big traffic jams, but there are a good 15-20 alternate routes you can take to get around. DC, its the beltway or bust.

Traffic jams on weekends are very common in California. Be it Los Angeles or San Francisco. DC is very bad too by US standards, I agree.

But as far as the worst in the world? Neither DC or LA for that matter are even worth mentioning compared to the kind of traffic you see in megacities around the world.

Trust me.

I don't. LA's traffic is nothing compared to Mexico City or Naples.

I've experienced traffic at the SFO-Oakland Bay Bridge. Very bad, especially during the summer. Manila is bad too.

New York City has pretty bad traffic, but it is not the worst in the world. I attribute this to the expansive subway, bus, and commuter rail system. With a pop of 8 mil in the city and many more in the suburbs, along with its high density, new york would probably be the worst city in the world without mass transit. during the transit strike, the city was brought to a standstill. Mass transit is the lifeline of this city, thus, making it refreshingly unique in the car-obsessed culture of the united states.

NYC traffic is world famous. Luckily, I've never had to live through it the 2 times I went there. Lagos's situation seems pretty bad.

Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Montevideo, Porto Alegre, Salvador, Asuncion, Lima, La Paz, Quito, Caracas, Santo Domingo, Bogota... Most (Though, not all) Latin American cities have very chaotic traffic.

Most African and some Asian Cities (Mostly in China, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh or Pakistan) Delhi, Dhaka, Colombo, Karachi, Islamabad, Hanoi, Bangkok...

Some Southern European Cities: Paris, Roma, Milano, Athens, Sofia, Bucharest, Lisboa.

Eastern European Cities: Moscow, Berlin, Budapest, Zagreb, Ljubljana...

North American cities: NYC, LA, SF, Calgary, Miami, Dallas, Boston...
Bogota is one of the cities with less traffic. It has the most extensive and modern bus transportation system and the world and it is very efficient. The famous transmilenio. Plus, it has a train that goes from north to south of the city and 300 km's in bike paths (2nd longest in the world).
