    Surprised Cairo didn't make that list. The above 15 must be really bad!

    I wonder how many of the above invest in new road structures to allieviate congestion.
    Dubai for example are building new 6 lane highways and overhead rail links and its working.

    Bangkok now is nothing compared with 25 years ago.
    Immagine the same traffic without skytrain, metro and highways going through the city. Could take an hour and a half to go (taxi) from Silom to Sukhumvit

    Manila not on the list? Far worse than BKK.

    Also i wonder how the air quality was in these cities 25+ years ago with the engine/exhaust technology available at the time. Every motorbike was a smoking 2-stroke etc..
