Suzanne lives in Bangkok with her husband and two children. Her office is seven km away but it takes her two hours to get there by car every day.
“Some cities have problems with pollution, crime, or bad weather – here we have traffic jams,” she says. Before going to the office, she has to take her children to school – so she sets off at 5 a.m. The children sleep until they arrive at school. Then Suzanne begins her journey to the office
In the evening the traffic is even worse. Traffic moves in the city centre at half a kilometre an hour. In rainy weather it doesn’t move at all.
But why is it so bad? In the past, more people moved around Bangkok by boat. Now so many people have a car, and there aren’t enough roads in the city. The Skytrain and metro can help a bit, but they are limited in range and don’t cover all parts of the city.
