This is my favourite traffic jam picture. Its basically a major highway with five private vehicle lanes in each direction, dedicated bus lanes on the side, and a segregated LRT line at the middle. And the only thing moving fast is the LRT!!!

@ David D, that particular pic is in Makati City, a suburb of Manila in the Philippines. The freeway is called EDSA, one of the main thoroughfares of the Metropolis. Other than being a highway, it was also the site of the "People's Power" Revolution that ended the 20 year reign of the dictator, Ferdinand Marcos.
