That's POLAND??! Jeezus. Looks like suburban USA... and that's not a particularly good thing.

But what looks like suburban? The traffic or the city space?

Goodness knows why you'd actually drive in Moscow, considering the fantastic metro system they have.

No wonder our traffic hours now extended 5 hours apart just to reduce the chaos! To avoid the 7am rush hours to drive comfortably in the morning, you gotta beat the crowd on 5am, damn I would say that Chicagoland drivers has the least sleeping hours on earth with all that commuting timeframe!
While I do agree that Chicagoland has some bad traffic, its NOTHING compared to any of the other traffic jams around the world, especially Asia. Having been to Manila (the pictures are real, makes for an adventure), it makes being on 290 or the Kennedy peaceful. Plus the CTA and Metra allow alternatives to driving too.

London hasnt got the worst traffic jams in england, let alone europe or the world, though busy i think many londoners need open their eyes and appreciate the advanced public transport at their disposal.

I have to agree the worst jams i know of are in asian cities, insane, sayting that Rome, Naples and Paris don't come to far behind - though i am not sure whether it is the amount of traffic or the erratic behaviour of the drivers there?...

Drivers in Naples are totally insane. Three people on a scooter, none wearing helmets, going the wrong way along a one way street ignoring all traffic lights is quite common.

However, despite (or maybe because of) the insanity of drivers in Naples, the traffic actually moves OK most of the time (from my fairly limited experience of it).

Don't know if someone mentioned The Belgium capital yet but in and around Brussels traffic is also really bad. I could not find any good picture though.
Beltway Brussels:

Rio de Janeiro can get nasty too! It's impressive how you can take more than 2 hour to go through 10 miles...

Nothing is on time in Rio. That picture shows the first kilometer of Brasil Avenue, the longest freeway in Brasil, more than 57km long. Its also the most congested road in Rio, with an AADT of nearly 270,000 vehicles. Believw me, you wont wanna go there!

But tourists rarely pass on it, since it connects the north zone and the suburb to the city center abd the tourists only visit the south zone. Remembering the the north zone ia the poorest part of the city, it can get really ugly...

Not true, I witnessed some of the worst traffic in LA and I'm a person that lives in Beijing, traveled to Jakarta, Shanghai, San Francisco, Honolulu etc...

I agree. I was in LA summer 2008 for a while and the traffic was mucho better than around greater London and Manchester in the UK!
