I love to travel in my country, visit some places but I hate traffics. I can't stand to stay in the road for an hour just because of traffics. I love to go in big cities just for a visit but not to stay there for a lifetime or work there, to wake up so early so that I will not encounter traffic. Aside from that the traffic pollution makes me caugh, dizzy and tears my eyes, even though how I adjust myself with that situation, I really can't adopt that liabilities. big cities gives many opportunities hope there's no traffic there.

I know the traffic is crazy in some cities and I remember sometime ago there was traffic jam for almost a day or something if I am not wrong it was in China. I was in Mumbai for sometime and traffic there used to be for hours and hours and it is such a waste to of time to just sit and wait in the car for the traffic to clear. I also staying in a place where there is less traffic problem. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

Yeah traffic makes our body feel tired even long travels where we sit for 3 hours or more. And traffic is already a part of what we do daily, I can tell since we're on the same country. And you're right, we can escape traffic by waking up early (I guess from 5am to 7am is just good. Expect heavy traffic at EDSA.

I live in Austin, Texas and do not come here if you can not stand traffic because it is really terrible. Austin is rated one of the worst cities in the United States for traffic congestion. I came to Austin in 1972 when it was a small city and there was no traffic. But there was not a lot of opportunity or much to do. Now, it is a big and bustling city with lots of opportunity and much to do but the traffic has become really horrible. I try to avoid going out on lunch hours or rush hours. That is the price that you pay for growth. There are pluses and minuses.

The rush hour makes us so irritated. Even there is color coding in automobiles, but still there is traffic jam along the road. That's the reason why some people are being late in their work. I used to wake up early so I can go to work without hassle.

I never could own a house on a busy road full of traffic. My first home was in a close in a village, my second home was in a close overlooking the countryside and my third home is in a quiet road with no passing traffic. I like to sight see in cities with attractive looking architecture. The most dirty, noisy and busy city was Medan in Indonesia on my travels. A traffic jam there would be horrible. I could never live in a city. I like to live in the countryside or in a quiet street in a town. Coming back from Cornwall to home there was very busy traffic on the motorway. I was happy to turn off it to an alternative road that I knew lead to home. Yes, a traffic jam is not a happy thing to wait in for ages.
