Millions of Hours Down the Drain in Tehran’s Massive Traffic Snarls

Tehran citizens are forced to squander 20 million hours a day in the overcrowded, traffic-clogged metropolis.
According to Mohammad Darvish, a prominent member of the Iranian Research Institute of Forest and Rangelands, Tehran residents collectively waste 20 million hours a day in the sluggish traffic of the capital.
Darvish says Tehran has the capacity to hold 2.3-2.5 million people, a figure that has long been exceeded by the growing population, reported Mehr News Agency.
“Residents of the city are four times the ideal two million; the number reaches 16.2 million when including the long-distance commuters.”
The city is faced with a grave crisis, manifesting itself in the congested traffic, stifling pollution and water shortage.
