Right now I am in India in a metro city. The traffic is horrible.In fact horrible is an understatement. Let me share an incident with you. A few months ago, I was on my way back from work and was in the Company bus.I fell asleep in the bus as we were stuck in a traffic jam for about 15-20 minutes. I got up almost 40 minutes later and guess what. The bus had moved around 5 feet!!I felt like crying! That is how bad the traffic can get here :|

It is no exaggeration. I wish it were! It was during the rains and I am talking about Mumbai( Bombay). You should look at the pot holes on the road during monsoons.Its a horrible sight. Plus just before monsoons they always start some sort of construction work, which remains incomplete during the monsoons, hence the traffic jams. Luckily for me, I get down at the last stop. So even if I sleep through the journey the driver of the bus will wake me up..lol.. I promise you its not an exaggeration.Ask a person living in Mumbai about how bad the traffic can get and you will know what I said is true :)

I stay in the city for work and go home every other weekend in the province. I notice how much heavier the traffic is in the city compared to the traffic in the province every time I travel back. Sometimes from my province, entering the national capital region will take around two hours in a good time. But once we're in, it would take us more than two hours to go into the central business district where most of the workers are. Some people think bringing their own cars help - well it helps make the traffic heavier! Public transportation in our country is also inconvenient because the drivers don't follow the traffic rules which makes the road hell for them and for other drivers as well. It's probably really more convenient to bring your own car if you prefer the comforts of air conditioning and if you go home and the rush hour fills up all the taxis and all the jeeps and all the buses. Thanks for the response on my discussion :)

Hi, I live in one of the small cities in Central Philippines. It's not so traffic as in large cities but we're having some sort of traffic because the roads were destroyed to put up new paved roads and it's the rainy season.
