Bengaluru, the Silicon City of India, is popularly known for its traffic problems as it was ranked second in the slowest place to drive through in the world last year. Once again, the city's tech corridor ‘Outer Ring Road (ORR)’ witnessed massive traffic congestion on Wednesday due to various reasons including protests against the Cauvery River water row, Ganesh Visarjan, and Comedian Trevor Noah's show that was canceled later.

“It took 5 hrs to reach my room from office today which is just 10 km away. Average speed 2km/hr. Horrible traffic in Bengaluru," the third user said.
“Traffic congestion at Bellandur leaves no place for pedestrians. Two wheelers riding on both sides on the footpath. What actions are you taking to penalise the bikers?" the fourth user said.
