Daily traffic in Catania

20140924_081813

The Traffic in Catania is the second worst I ever seen, Naples has place 1. Many sicilians say Palermo is worst, but personally I do not agree as I visit Palermo very often and drive there from Catania. This road is going to the city center and is normally a one-lane road that too often becomes a three-lane road. The you have always plenty of these experts in the traffic, like the third car on the left side creating a total blockage as the cars coming towards us can not pass so we all stand still. He refuses to move. The traffic here is unnecessarily chaotic, you see the sicilian selfishness and egoism in the traffic. I do not like this city so much anyway...

Trafiken i Catania är den näst värsta jag någonsin sett,  Napoli har plats 1. Många sicilianare säger Palermo är värst, men personligen håller jag inte med eftersom jag besöker Palermo ofta och kör dit från Catania. Denna väg på bilden är till stadens centrum och är normalt en enfilsväg som blir allt för ofta blir en trefilsväg. Det finns alltid gott om dessa experter i trafiken, som den tredje bilen på vänster sida som skapar en total blockering då bilarna som kommer mot oss inte kan passera och vi alla står still. Han vägrar att flytta på sig. Trafiken här är onödigt kaotiskt, du ser sicilianska själviskheten och egoismen i trafiken. Jag gillar inte den här staden så mycket ändå...

    Concur 100%. I often hear ‘The traffic in Catania is bad, so many cars’. But in fact there is not a lot of traffic it is just selfish ignorant driving that causes chaos for everyone. The sad thing is that the schmucks don’t understand that only 1 out of 10 times they are faster ‘cheating the queue’ but 9 out 10 times they have to wait because of another ignorant is messing up the ‘system’.

    On that note. I often hear ‘When you can drive in Catania, you can drive anywhere. Well, I think thats assuming there is a system to follow. There is none! It is like comparing a school play with a real performance!

      You are so right. I actually say those words myself these days. I rather walk to city center because it is much faster than taking the car.
