Why did people get caught up in traffic jams in February. Well there was a fast unto death...
Never ending road constructions
A fire or two
Independence day celebrations ...

And of course protest marches. Several of them in fact.
Finally if traffic happened to be moving smoothly, there would always be a roadhog or two trying to cause trouble

Now for a look at the numbers
Clearly this is not as bad as January when the sky scrapers seemed to be a lot taller. It's no surprise then that the February mean for the number of published traffic alerts per day is 28.2 where as it was 39.5 in the previous month.
