Rio is an energetic, vibrant place, full of beauty and nature. But we face the kinds of problems any developing metropolis does – with pollution, traffic congestion, poverty. Distribution of green areas, for example, is not uniform. Madureira, the heart of the suburb in Rio, is a concrete jungle.
Eduardo Paes
I’m the worst person to be stuck with in a traffic jam.

Oren Etzioni
Raising the congestion charge won’t necessarily make a difference. Rather than increasing the amount you pay in congestion charge, we should be thinking about an ultra low emission zone. We should penalise those cars who are the biggest polluters and reward cars that don’t, like electric cars.
Sadiq Khan
What I find is really interesting is the Ear-Nose-Throat doctor thing, which I know would take a lot of work and education, but it’s something that really interests me, because it’s something that helps people who’ve had the same problems as me, with the whole hearing and nose congestion and problems with your voice.
David Archuleta
If you sell me a car, we have perhaps made a good bargain for ourselves. But there are effects of this transaction on others, which we do not take into account. There is more pollution, the price of gas goes up, there is more congestion.
Noam Chomsky
I take Sudafed to combat my congestion, so I always carry some with me because I like to be prepared and make sure I’m ready whenever symptoms strike. It’s also a really good idea to figure out what your triggers are.
Alison Sweeney
If we could just stop the tourism, we could stop the congestion.
Prince Philip
We need to find innovative ways to dramatically ease congestion, improve personal mobility, and cut energy use.
Dan Lipinski
America faces a mounting transportation crisis, and the primary culprit is road congestion. Traffic makes us unhealthy, wastes enormous amounts of time, and cripples national productivity. America needs expanded roads and transportation infrastructure, but traditional gas tax funding is no longer available.
Joe Lonsdale
To avoid congestion, I get up at 5:10, grab a slice of raisin toast, and leave the house at 6 A.M. My husband, Tim Dunn, who works for an environmental agency, is still asleep when I slip out, and I find that rather annoying.
Ellen Stofan
The Prius does about 55mpg and it always amuses me. I love it when you pull up at someone’s house and all you can hear is the gravel crunching under the tyres. I don’t have to pay the central London congestion charge, either.
Paul Young

James Surowiecki
Our world is evolving without consideration, and the result is a loss of biodiversity, energy issues, congestion in cities. But geography, if used correctly, can be used to redesign sustainable and more livable cities.
Jack Dangermond
Teach kids not to fight. Can they change taxes? I’d get rid of all the congestion charges, because they’ve not stopped traffic. They’re a waste of time, not that I’m getting all political.
Peter Andre

Anton Chekhov
This congestion in the post offices is due to what are technically known as “regulations” but what are really a series of acrostics and anagrams devised by some officials who got around a table one night and tried to be funny.
Robert Benchley
Data can generally travel the speed of light unless networks are congested. When there’s congestion, usually the cheapest and best thing is simply to add capacity generally, not to prioritize certain sites over others.
