Seoul, Beijing, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Tokyo. Major cities in Asia take rush hour to a new level compared to the US.

Oshodi Market, Lagos was one of the worst place in the world for traffic till it got cleaned up.

Their are three bridges into the CBD of Lagos (Victoria Island/Lagos Island) and on one half is 16+ million people and the other is 1-2 million people. Many of those in the 16 million people area are trying to go to the 1-2 million people area leading to horrendous traffic.

Apapa Road traffic--> apparently it's so bad people live at their workplace and go home on the weekends. This area is likely going to improve though with the banning of yellow buses as well as motorbikes.

Seoul and Tokyo and Shanghai don't even make the list? Color me skeptical.

That’s the bridge and tunnel bottleneck due to NYC being built on islands. It’s not just a rush hour thing either, it’s always bad, though there are definitely times where it can be better or worse. Only so many ways in/out of Manhattan and Long Island (the physical Island, not the suburbs) where BK and Queens are. This can be easily avoided by taking the subway though.

Here’s a pro-tip: take the subway to Queens first (which should only be 1-5 stops max depending on where in Midtown you are) and then after getting across the river call the cab/uber to LaGuardia. It’ll save you an unbelievable amount of time! The bridge and tunnel traffic getting in and out of Manhattan drives me insane and I avoid it at all costs!

The section bewteen Keele and 400 is the busiest highway in North America.
maybe in the context of North America.

Beijing's subway is so crowded that you need to line up for 30 minutes just to get into the station, yet people complain about how TTC is "crowded". And the 401 is nothing compared to a lot of other highways.

And people think NYC metro is crowded, think again.
