Recently, the reliable research outfit named Numbeo has released a list of cities which they described to have the most bottlenecks of the world. The website has used numerous criteria for an assessment like the average time people spent on a one-way journey.
The Dhaka city in Bangladesh has won the first position in the list with the recorded high time index for a one-way trip about 63.94 minutes. Meanwhile, India becomes the country of the worst traffic status with 3 listed cities.
However, it comes with a great curiosity of Nigerian citizens as they questioned why Lagos wasn’t in the list although a commuter here might have to spend the average time of over hours or even more than that of cities in the ranking to commute in the city.
Is there any better rationale for that? Well, before finding the answer, go with Naijauto.com to view on those cities with the worst traffic congestion.
