Traffic jams, now that's a nice topic.

But can you explain these two remarks:

My cities are usually larger  :) . Something left from the last Contest...  ;D

 Too many trucks, not enough highway!
  This will actually clear itself out, usually caused by truck extending into     intersection at traffic lights.

I post this one, unless I have time to make a better one.

Title: Single Tube Tunnel
Description: Most Alpine Tunnels have only one tube, so, for safety reason, most heavy trucks need to travel well distanced. The traffic light allows one through only when there is safety distance with the one in front.

pak:128

Description:

As the main route connecting the city of Murao (capital) and metropolitan city of pyrite, also taking the high road to the main airport serving the metropolitan area, daily congestion, creating a horrible traffic for drivers of cars. Even if passengers do not escape this horrible traffic, because the main bus terminal is there, connecting neighborhoods throughout the east.

This is from an actual game I played. On the lower right corner is the regional bus station that serves the town of Oldby on the east side of the river and the town of Walville on the west side. As building a railway between the other bus stations was still not profitable, there was a lot of traffic on the streets. The jam is caused by an unlucky herd of sheep.
