What is the daily traffic jam costing you?
Assuming that you are in a jam six times in a week, you spend `108 more than you would otherwise
This year, it’s not Mumbai but Delhi-NCR which is facing the wrath of monsoons. In May 2015, Delhi witnessed a traffic jam on National Highway 8 that spread over 20km and lasted for more than 4 hours. Headline-making traffic jams haunt commuters. Sridharan Ramkumar, 41, a lawyer by profession and who travels from his home in Gurgaon Sector 56 to Saket—a distance of about 30 km, said, “Nowadays it takes me around 2 hours to commute one way. There is a new metro station coming up at Golf Link Road, and that poses a major traffic block." Many of those travelling from Gurgaon to Delhi using the Golf Link Road to reach Mehrauli Gurgaon Road face this problem. Queues are long, and slow moving. “I use a Maruti Alto 800 with CNG facility. Fuel alone costs me ₹ 300 just travelling one side," said Ramkumar.
