Jakarta probably has the worst traffic on a global basis. The average traffic speed is 6 km/hr. This is mainly due to the sheer volume of traffic on the road, total lack of spatial planning, a complete disregard of traffic regulations and a total lack of law enforcement. There is no proper driver training and driving licenses are purchased, without a test. The inhabitants know how to operate vehicles but do not know how to drive.
