Daily Traffic Congestion - Lots of Taxis!

Every morning between 7:00AM and 9:30AM this is a picture of the traffic below my apartment balcony. Here the belief is that if you hit your horn all your driving problems will immediately be solved so that combined with lots of impatience you can imagine, the mornings are very noisy here. You'll notice I have marked all the taxis and the traffic assistants. I don't really know what value the traffic assistants have, they spend more of their time, talking with their friends or turning a blind eye to the numerous traffic violations which occur every morning.
