In Bengaluru, my car has been dented and damages several times. I have been sued many times for the faults of someone else. People will charge thousands of rupees of compensation from others for one's own fault. I have been cheated multiple times in Bengaluru. The traffic police are worst. Bengaluru is filled with horrible car drivers.
Bengaluru has the worst traffic congestion in the world.

People here are worst and only know to abuse the vehicles. Crazy honking, awful bikers, dented cars, pathetic drivers, all trying to play Tetris on the narrow roads filled with potholes at several places. Short distances can take hours, airport is ridiculously far and will miss the flights if not on time. The check-in takes a very long time.
People don't follow any rules on the road. Bangalore is only filled with rule-breakers and zero discipline people.

You asked for some data in you format for Bangalore traffic.
As for me, I am not a regular employee. I retired from regular service nine years back.
Now, I go to my my small farm 32 kms awsy from my home by bike twice a week along highway.

Rarely I go to other places in the city. Depending upon circumstances, I travel by public transport or renting a car. For distance less than four kms I take a walk. I observe majority of the people do not walk. I feel unsafe walking due to automobiles driven by reckless persons .

You can notice traffic nauseating congestion in areas close to central roads of the city.

Automobile traffic makes the city more and more unworthy to live. Whom to blame? People. The crazy people, who love four wheelers to the detriment of his fellow citizens.
