Concerning Traffic Congestion: Bengaluru Falls Behind Other Indian Cities

India has strict traffic laws. This is the definitive evidence that Hamara’s politics will never change. TomTom, a navigation and mapping business, provides us with information for Bharat Mahaan by ranking four Indian cities among the world’s 10 worst; as if being home to 9 of the 10 most polluted cities wasn’t bad enough. Bangalore, often known as Bengaluru, is the most populous city in the state of Karnataka, ranking first, followed by Mumbai at number four, Pune at number five, and Delhi at number eight.

Cities in India, and Asia more generally, have displaced some large U.S. metropolises that were once known for their gridlock among the worst in the world. San Francisco is much ahead of Los Angeles (at 59) and New York (at 52). The Greater Washington area, where I now live, is ranked number 141 on TomTom’s worldwide rating, making it the fourth worst in the United States. After introducing the globe to the vehicle, the West has now abandoned the planet, allowing India to pick up the slack.

Even Bangkok (now 11), where it is believed that traffic is so sluggish that you can brush teeth, shave, wash up, have breakfast, read and answer emails in your car, and still make it to work in time for lunch, can’t compare to my hometown, where we shamble along at a leisurely 184. Assuming you avoid the Hebbal Flyover and Silk Road Junction, you may leave your house in January and reach to your office in March in Bengaluru.

Nevertheless, whenever one is in Bengaluru, one need to rent a car and explore the city at own pace. TomTom estimates that commuters in Bengaluru spend an additional 243 hours per year stuck in traffic due to rush hour. This is equivalent to an extra 10 days per year. By the time they’re 30, a youngster today might have wasted an entire year stuck in traffic. It’s no surprise that when Bengaluru traffic comes to a complete standstill, drivers are rumoured to convert their cars into makeshift cemeteries and retirement communities for the elderly.

Many individuals are giving up on the road to perdition and instead opting for the staircase leading to paradise. This situation is not terrible, but. Sometimes Bengalurans will realise they are being passed even in extremely congested traffic when there is no chance of being overtaken. Simply put, time is moving on without them.
