Cape Town or Johannesburg? Yes, Cape Town has the worst traffic!

According to GPS Tracker TomTom, Cape Town comes out on top. 

The worst traffic day took place on 25 October 2019 on a Friday. It was on a day the city experienced heavy rain with localised flooding. 

Johannesburg experienced the worst traffic on Valentine's Day in 2019. This was due to the Stage 2 load shedding implemented on that specific day. 

"They (Jo'burgers) laugh when you tell them that traffic is worse in Cape Town. They don't believe you. I missed a flight due to the traffic and I was just a few minutes away from the airport," Elma Smit.

So, what is the best time to avoid traffic? 

Best time to avoid traffic in Cape Town: According to TomTom, you can save five hours per year for a 30-minute commute if you travel before 07:00 on a Monday morning.
