I Hate Traffic

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 310 People

    I realize that I myself am traffic,

    but it sucks. Maybe if my car didn't have a high idle and burn oil out of my exhaust and everywhere around me like John Candy in the movie Uncle Buck. Give me music and a car that isn't on the verge of dying, I'll stay in traffic all day.

    What I dislike about traffic in Los Angeles is

    that there will be this enormous gridlock, and you're thinking, wow, the accident up ahead must be epic! —but when you finally reach the "accident" it's just some towtruck guy changing a lady's tire, and EVERYONE just has to SLAM their brakes practically to a screeching halt...

    If I leave my home at 6:30 I can get to the preschool in 7 minutes however, if I leave at 6:40 it takes me 20 minutes. WTF! I hate running but trying to get three plus me, ready and out the door is a chore. It takes everyones cooperation and that isn't always an option. It's a...

    Traffic Is Common Where I Live (kuala Lumpur)

    Sitting on my car on a congested expressway just waiting to move. I would take a nearby exit just to escape such traffic. But the good thing about it is that you can make plans through my day and listen to music (but hating the advertisements on the radio though). I hate it...

    How Do You People Stand It?&nb...

    How do you people stand it?  I'd go mad even madder if I had to sit on a freeway stop-and-go for 45 minutes every morning and evening just to travel 5 miles.  I live in the country, and my commute is 12.5 seconds down a flight of stairs, so I'm spoiled, but I still don...

    Are You Blind Or Just Stupid? Either Way What Are You Doing Drivin?

    A crosswalk or intersection with someone trying to cross is the same as a stop sign. I don't care how much of a hurry you're in, I don't like ending up on the hood of someone's car! Also the stop line is where you stop, it's the law not just a suggestion, the crosswalk is NOT...

    Rush Hour

    I was in the car the other day with my cousin, Maya. As we were driving, we ran into traffic. "Oh," Maya exclaimed. "Why do they even bother calling it 'rush hour' when everyone is moving SO slow?!"

    Such Stress

    As if the cost of gas isn't bad enough, the traffic in which we have to sit in - wasting the aforementioned gas - is unbearable. I choose to keep the job I have (must pay bills, ya know) and I know it's 40 minutes away (one way).  Traffic will be inevitable.  In the...

    It's F*cking Green!!

    I think the part I hate the most about traffic is when you get behind a d*mb@ss who sits at a green light.  Are kidding me?  I mean how long ago was it when you got your license?  Not that it should matter, bc I mean, it's like green ever meant anything else. ...

    Road Rage

    so badly want to be in front of me that they actually will try and pass me after I have started to change lanes. Why not just change lanes also? Why punch it and try playing chicken with the truck that can crush your car? I know my truck can only go 62 mph but if I'm moving...

    Traffic sucks in Chicago today!

    There are police officers everywhere. The trains were all delayed on my way home from work today. I asked a police officer what was wrong, and it turns out Obama is in town. Go figure, he decides to ride around the city in the middle of rush hour! 😠

    Is there anything more frustrating then being stuck in traffic? Well, maybe being stuck in traffic while late for an appointment - and then finding out the traffic is due to gapers block.

    I Hate Traffic

    I take 4 freeways to get to work.  What a mess but the nice thing is I leave at 4:30am and not many people are on the road.  There is a bit more when I leave but its not crazy, usually. I am dreading going to 8-5 when I start an internship I gotta do next month...

    My Tolerance For Traffic Is Quite Low

    I'm not saying that I get road rage, but I just enjoy driving much more when there's no one in front of or behind me. This arises out of a desire to not be an inconvenience to anyone, as I like to travel at my own pace. When traffic is present, I generally apply Murphy's Law to...
