So you are late, for whatever it is you are late for, and you are- with Murphy's help- stuck in a traffic jam.
What do you do?
1. honk continuously till you are able to move another inch
2. sit at the wheel while cussing in hopes that'll change the situation.
3. forget it all, leave the engine running, and hope you won't be late, running in the street between the packed cars.

When I am stuck in a traffic jam, I would try to take the nearest exit and take either the local roads to my destination or drive a few miles on the local road and then get back on the freeway.

Swear continuously. It's rare where I live to be stuck in a traffic jam for more than 5 minutes, so I know I would only be a couple more minutes. No way in hell would i get out and run, it would make me even later.

Traffic can get jammed up here in Winnipeg, but I always leave half an hour earlier than most normal people would leave to get to something, and so once I start driving, I doubt a traffic jam will ever make me late for work. I'm a very patient person most of the time, and so I'd just sit in my car and inch forward slowly. Eventually you get to the front.

i honk continuously. here in Albania is very easy to get stuck in traffic.
we deal with a lot of traffic and ours is one of the countries with the highest number of accidents. it's a real mess.
there are day when the traffic lights won't work and the policemen won't be in the crossroad to give a hand to drivers. so imagine the real chaos that is caused...

I don't honk. WTF Is honking going to do? Make the accident magically clear up and traffic to start moving?

I just wait and might curse but that's it.

I'm actually a really patient driver. When it comes to traffic jams in my area I know where all the horrible choke points are in my town or going to town. So worst case scenario I'll drive 5 minutes out of my way to avoid a 30 minute traffic Jam.

However in the slim chance that I do get stuck in the middle... I'll usually just sit there patiently, cussing up a storm at my wheel about how ignorant and rude all the other drivers are. How things could go much smoother if people would just cooperate instead of worrying about getting out of the jam.

They always seem like the kind of people that would stick their hand in a pickle jar, grab as many as possible, then freak out and not know what to do when they cant pull their hands out.
