Traffic in Karachi – A comparison
I am sure the picture above is a familiar scene in Karachi. Getting stuck in crazy traffic jams is an everyday story now.
There are people who say traffic jams in Karachi is not a big deal as it happens in all big cities of the world.
Observe the picture of a traffic jam after the jump…
That’s how rush hour traffic looks like in most metropolitan cities in the west.
But if you look at this picture carefully, and compare it with Karachi, you will find many differences.
Some of them are as follows:
1. Between any two cars, there is a gap of at least one car.
2. All lanes are straight. It seems like the cars are parked in straight lines. I hardly see any car changing lanes.
In short, although the traffic is congested, it has not lost its sanity.
On the contrary, the traffic in Karachi gets on your nerves.
Do you still think we can compare Karachi traffic with other cities? I didn’t think so.
It’s much worse here.
