Ah, Chicago. The Windy City. Known for its musical roots, its deep dish pizza, its interesting choice of hot dog toppings, and its gridlock traffic. Not many things are more soul crushing than rush hour traffic - especially when it’s not even rush hour. I-90 in the winter? Get out of here!
Luckily, some folks took to Twitter to air their frustrations about the situation. Let’s read what they had to say:>

Those Chicago traffic feels tho. We feel your pain, fam. Next time you’re cruising down I-90 traffic-free, just remember to relish that moment because it won’t last long. We love reading your funny traffic tweets, but remember - don’t tweet and drive. That’s what Siri’s for.
