Having lived in Timisoara for many years I say some of the indexes are incorrect.

The traffic index is 'very low' but it should be 'high'. Driving around is a nightmare because of traffic jams, lack of parking spaces and aggressive drivers. Also, the public transport is very inefficient and commuting on a bicycle can be challenging. So you can expect to commute up to an hour or more depending on where you live and where you work.

The pollution index is 'moderate' but should be 'high'. There many polluting industries in the city and it is a persistent debate whether tyre manufacturer Continental adheres to the pollution laws as the city smells of burned rubber frequently. Additionally, the average cars are old and sometimes modified to remove the catalytic converter for better performance/fuel economy, so you have a lot of pollution from traffic as well.
