There's plenty of crowded streets across the globe, but not many get as busy as those of Africa. From the crowded streets of Nairobi, Kinshasa, and Lagos in this case, just about every major African city is constantly buzzing with thousands of people and cars, and the ongoing flow of activity never seems to cease.  Street vendors and hawkers add to the traffic even more, and once you get stuck in traffic it can take an hour just to travel a couple of blocks. As you can see in this picture as well, markets will occasionally spill over into the streets, blocking off important travel routes and causing the congestion to intensify. In order for most people to just make it across town, the yellow 'danfos' (buses) that you see everywhere are a vital part of city life - but they in turn cause the traffic to worsen even more, so much so that they were actually recently banned in various places across the city.
