Tehran Traffic Jam

Newer Older

Tehran (the capital city of Iran) is a very crowded city.
It's polpulation is more than 12 millions at work hours and 7 millions at night time.
I don't know the number of autos in Tehran streets, but from my friend's source, about 3 millions car are now driven in Tehran!
Here is "Vali-e Asr" street, shoot from top of "Parkway" bridge, at sunset time.
The background mountains are northern mountains of Tehran, where our home is placed on!
Check the map for more geographic info.

    When you repeat this scene on a massive scale worldwide - whether your view point is a peak oil perspective or concern about climate changing emissions the implications and corresponding urgent imperative for socio-cultural transition towards a sustainable future is compelling.
