#CD on Mar 12, 2017 :
The major highways and avenues (Avenida Recife, Caxangá, Agamenon Malgalhães, etc) are almost constantly congested. If possible, avoid these three especially during peak times (7am, midday and 5pm). 5pm is the worst! I was once caught in traffic on Agamenon Malgalhães for two hours plus, doing a journey that normally would talk half hour at most!!
Avenida Recife is also pretty terrible in terms of congestion, especially the part by Hiper up until Makro supermarket.
