Terrible Traffic and Deafening Noise!
This is what characterizes the early hours of the morning in Albania's capital.
Long queues and overcrowded roadways not only drive drivers off the rails, but it makes them late to work or school, too.
The reason for all of this lies in the city's efforts to encourage biking and busing: but narrowing the road-lanes are not helping the "organization and free movement of vehicles."
RTV Ora News monitored the situation on several main streets in Tirana, noting that the capital's citizens are complaining more and more every day.
But the morning hours are not the only "time of day" when traffic comes to a standstill; some people say the same situation after 4pm is just as bad.
