When I say traffic jams, what do you think about first? Richmond road comes to mind, seventh street west heading out of town at 5 o'clock, maybe Stateline around the lunch hour?

Texarkana is pretty unique that it has only a few areas that traffic can be bad, we do have it pretty easy. The website trip savvy has a list of the 5 most congested driving places in the world. The Waze app ranked the five worst places you do not want to drive.

1. Phillipenes. The country has a lot to offer in terms of tourist attractions, some dating back to the 1940's. The entire country ranks as one of the worst, but the city of Manilla is the worst for traffic problems which include traffic jams, congestion, lack or roadside service and poor roads.

2.Central America. El Salvador ranked as the worst places for people to drive. Its neighbors Costa Rica Guatemala and Panama ranked poorly as well. The issues with poor roads and a very corrupt government are the biggest issues.

3. South America. Columbia ranks as one of the worst places to drive and the country is also ranked as one of the most dangerous as well.

4. Indonesia. Bali is the area most associated with Indonesia but the surrounding areas are of major concern. The country gets a score of 3.7 on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of driver safety.

5. Romania. Most countries in Europe are similar to the United States in terms of how to drive and makes the driving in those countries a little easier when you are on vacation, but Romania is at the bottom of the list in terms of river safety. It is the only European country to appear in the top ten worst to public transportation may be the best way to get around safely.

After seeing this list I am pretty sure we can handle a little bit of traffic around here. Is there any other place in Texarkana that are dangerous to drive, or have bad traffic issues?
