The Mother City still has the mother of all traffic jams.
For the second year‚ Cape Town is ranked as the most congested city in South Africa – and the 47th worst in the world – in the annual traffic index from Dutch navigation equipment maker TomTom.
Johannesburg is ranked 77th out of 174 cities listed‚ but Durban doesn’t get a mention.

The world’s most congested metropolis is Mexico City‚ where congestion adds an average of 57 minutes to the daily commute‚ followed by Bangkok‚ Istanbul‚ Rio de Janeiro and Moscow.
