It used to be, driving in Kuwait was becoming unbearable but I think it officially has. Getting from one place to another needs a lot of time patience and time, both of which most people don’t have. I left my destination yesterday heading to an important meeting giving myself 45 minutes to what should have been a 25-30 minute drive.
The 5th ring road alone had 3 separate car accidents. One of whom was already resolved and all cars were moved to the safe lane but that still made a lot of traffic because people would slow down to look, even worse sometimes take photos. Add to that the big portion of disrespectful drivers, maniac drivers and terrible drivers or a combination of all three and you have a summary of what it’s like driving in Kuwait.
It took me an hour to get to my destination and I was 15 minutes late. My biggest problem isn’t the unbearable traffic life of Kuwait itself, but rather the fact that nothing tangible is being done for the near future and things will only get worse. Keeping in mind deporting expats for the smallest violations won’t help solve the issue.
