Report: KL Is Apparently One Of The Most Stressful Cities In The World To Drive In

See this image already stressed.

If you've been driving around Kuala Lumpur your entire life, you'd agree that it's not the most fun thing to do.

Apparently, even the mat sallehs agree.

Is it a surprise tho?

The capital city of Malaysia has been ranked in the top ten when it comes to the most stressful cities to drive in - something that we all can relate to, kan?

UK-based car-sharing platform Hiyacar recently released its ranking of the world's most stressful cities to drive in.

In the list, Hiyacar ranked 36 cities around the world based on several key factors, including the total number of vehicles in the city, the number of cars per capita, how severe traffic congestion is in the city, the quality of the roads, public transportation options and the number of traffic accidents per year, among others.

The judging panel will give an overall score out of ten (ten being the most stressful, of course) for each factor, before the numbers are rounded up to get the ranking. 

Kuala Lumpur has the 'honour' of being the only Malaysian city to be included in the list, ceremoniously occupying the sixth spot with a score of 5.3 out of ten.

See the traffic also stress.
To be honest, the average score for KL doesn't look too bad compared to the three cities occupying the top of the list.

The city of Mumbai in India topped the list as the world's most stressful city to drive in, with a ridiculous score of 7.4, while Paris was ranked second with a score of 6.4 and Jakarta came in third with a score of 6.0 points.

Delhi and New York round up the top five with a score of 5.9 and 5.6 respectively.

Other cities that made the top ten include Nagoya, London, Mexico and Osaka. You can check out the complete list here.

What do you guys think? Should another Malaysian city (ahem, Penang, ahem) be included in the list, or is Kuala Lumpur the undisputed king of stressful driving?
