The most complaints of annoying causes of traffic jams in the country include people taking shelter at underpass during heavy rains which clogs the main roads for vehicles and motorist. Also, the streets are filled with vendors which steal the way where pedestrians should be walking on. Hence, people have no choice but to walk on roads that should be for vehicles. There are also street violators around the city: parking under the “no parking” sign and driving on pedestrian lanes. The country’s population is also pointed out as one of the main reasons of traffic congestion in the city.
