12 Mind-Blowing Pictures Of Rush Hour Commutes From All Over The World

Driving a car can feel incredibly liberating. There's nothing quite like hopping into a vehicle and hitting the open road or even going for a relaxing cruise around town.

If you've ever experienced heavy traffic, however, then you also know how frustrating driving in it can be. Every day, thousands of commuters sit for hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic to and from work. In some countries, it can be even longer.

Here are 12 startling pictures of commuter traffic from countries all around the world. After seeing some of them, you might not ever complain about your own commute again!

1. Beijing, China: China is one of the most populated countries in the world, and all you have to do is look at Beijing's morning commuter traffic to prove it. Hopefully, everyone's bosses knows they are going to be very late.
2. Dhaka, Bangladesh: Traffic in Dhaka is a little different than most other places in the world. Few people actually own vehicles, so most ride in the back of bicycle carriages. At least it makes for easy conversation with the commuters next to you!
3. Venice, Italy: Venice is an incredibly unique place to commute. Instead of traditional roads, most people travel by the iconic canals and waterways. However, that doesn't mean that they don't have to suffer through some aquatic traffic during their morning rush hour!
4. Chhattisgarh, India: Most people are accustomed to long lines of cars during rush hour each day, but in the city of Chhattisgarh, commuters have a totally different problem: cows! Honking horns impatiently won't help in this situation. You just have to hope that the animals mooove it and get to their destination as quickly as possible.
