A bit of traffic

If Aucklanders thing they’ve got things bad traffic-wise (and they have) at least it’s not this bad.

    It gets pretty bad in Beijing, but I don’t think I have seen it quite that bad!

    Who would be dumb enough to drive on roads that get as clogged as that. LOL.

    Another good reason to turn off the migration flow – those places are bursting at the seams, one by one they are going down like dominoes.

    My friend says that it is not usually THAT bad, although it’s bad enough ! This photo was taken on an exceptionally awful day and made headlines even over there. She avoids these roads if she possibly can, as it takes so long to go anywhere even on days when it’s nothing like this. There are 20,000,000 people in the Delhi area.

    People drive there because they have no choice, as they do everywhere.

    India isn’t going down like a domino, it’s flourishing.
