Traffic Craze
September 19, 2006
For the next 9 months the traffic will be unbearable. Today, it took me 15 mins to get out of my area and another 20 just to get on the Maghreb Motorway to head to Kuwait City. It was all because of schools starting and one damn intersection. What happens is that when one light turns green and all cars are rushing into the intersection, nobody is thinking "ok we cant get through, lets wait till the road clears a bit"; so the intersection is full of cars and when the other light turns green, more cars rush in saturating the area even more leaving no space for cars to manuever. I managed to take this pic, although it doesnt really show what really is happening but the cars you see have been stopped there for a few minutes and cars from other directions were all flowing in! I was a crazy morning. Took me 1 hour to get to work!

Advice: Leave the house at 6:50 if you want to get on work on time and without suffering mental trauma!

    :: i used to be outside @ 6:50 everyday but since our work starts at 8:00AM so why should i wake up every !@#$% day @ 6:30AM hehe, i hate traffic and i know every body does but we must fix "people" not the "traffic" :)

    Dude! I know exactly what your talking about! Its driving me crazy! I cant seem to find a fast way to work, and I live Mishref driving to Shuweikh! I tried 4 different routes! I have to deal with kids going to school in the beginning and then I have to deal with the Looreeyat in Shuweikh and those things are HORRIBLE! Im going to get a tank and start running over people who block intersections!

    6:50am seems to be the only way out!
