With over 2 million cars in the small state of Kuwait, morning and afternoon traffic are a part of a working person’s daily life. Generally due to the countless accidents that happen on these roads or simply because of the sheer mass of vehicles on the road, the traffic can become a grating experience. Remember, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. The list below outlines the various stages of denial, impatience and frustration that go hand in hand with the soul-destroying traffic routine.
