Brazil’s Sao Paolo has the dubious honour of having the world’s worst daily traffic jams in terms of distance. Brazilian traffic jams may stretch up to 265 kilometers!

(On June 10, 2009, they experienced complete gridlock with an accumulated traffic jam of 182 miles (293 km).

China holds the record of the world’s worst traffic jam, for A 100-kilometer long traffic jam in 2010, which took ten days to disappear, some drivers were stuck for five days.

Imagine phoning your boss with that excuse. “Er, I’m stuck in a jam, I’ll be about five days late.)
