5 worst traffic cities in the world

Everybody hates a traffic jam. And every American driver seems to think traffic in his or her home city is the worst in the world. But when we consider the awful commutes drivers in other countries are forced to endure, we really can't complain.

According to an IBM survey of 20 cities, "The daily commute in some of the world's most economically important international cities is longer and more grueling than before imagined, reflecting the failure of transportation infrastructure to keep pace with economic activity." Believe it or not, Los Angeles and New York weren't even among the top ten worst.

Google Sightseeing gives us a brief glimpse of the five worst traffic cities in the world:
  1. New Delhi
  2. Moscow
  3. Johannesburg
  4. Mexico City
  5. Beijing
Yes, traffic in Beijing is really is that bad. The city once saw a traffic jam that stretched for 62 miles...and lasted for nine days! I don't know about you, but I can't think of many jobs that would inspire me to start my commute nine days early.

Yes. If you look closely, you can see duplicate cars.
