I think that I've seen better days in this city, at least with respect to traffic.
A 10 km ride is taking no less than 35 minutes, and if you were attempting that in peak traffic hours, add another 20 minutes to that. The pollution is choking, and I don't see the number of vehicles coming down or the roads broadening up. I guess this place is heading for what could be worse.
I would say it is still lot better than the metros. Also since the IT companies are location slightly away from the crowded city part it is easier. Also I normally use to go little late in the morninf so for me it was a smooth one.
Very true for the 5 working days but yeah on weekends we use to go some places but less at restaurents. My daughter doesn't allow us enjoy time at restaurants anymore.
Also I came to US couple of months back.
