Third World Traffic

Oh my. Well, such traffic jams can be expected in less developed countries like this mess in China.



Oops, this one above is not China, but between Los Angeles and San Diego. The solution is clear. More lanes need to built. Oh, you say, they did, twice. 

What about the idea of some kind of comfortable seating carriage running on rails that could carry all these people using a tenth of the space? We'll call it a train.

  2. Oh yuck. I could get road rage just thinking about travelling (or more likely NOT travelling) in that. Yay for public transport.

    1. EC, as long as the public transport does not get stuck in traffic.

    1. Sandra, you are better off in a big city and staying in your own area than commuting like so many do.

    1. Hi Sami. I truly do not know how people cope with traffic like that. It is bad enough here in Melbourne.

    1. Grace, it is now in our genes to complain about traffic. I do and will continue to do so.

  6. It's bad even here, in a relatively small town, the jams of cars everywhere, with their fumes.

    1. Strayer, although the road on which we live is exceptionally busy, I find traffic in small towns quite noisy and intrusive.

  7. Something is going to have to change. I don't think it will be too far in the future before all private cars are banned from the centre of London.

    1. Marie, even now I am guessing it is only really the wealthy who would pay to drive in central London. Fortunately your alternative is good, much as Londoners complain about The Tube.

  8. I'm surprised anyone over there manages to get to work at all, with traffic like that.They must be spending half their day sitting in cars.

    1. River, it is not unusual for traffic to be like this, according to what I was reading.
