World's worst traffic

Jakarta has earned the dubious honor of being named the city with the worst traffic congestion in the world according to a new study by the British motor-oil company Castrol. With more than 16 million motor vehicles (98% of which are private vehicles) and an additional 600 or so cars and 3000 motorbikes clogging the city’s roads each day, the World Bank predicts that Jakarta will soon face total gridlock unless the government starts promoting public transport and infrastructure instead of giving tax breaks to big automotive companies.
