Occurs between 5:00pm to 9:00pm (it's alway the worst at 5), rush hour happens in pretty much any urbanized area, especially in and around major cities. The excess of cars on the road causes gridlock and traffic jams. However, once traffic actually starts moving, you figure out why it's called "rush hour", because everyone is in a rush and would rather risk you slamming into the side of their car as they cut a quick left, then wait 3 seconds for you to pass.
During rush hour; unless you are fearless and like to rush into traffic horns blazing; avoid stop signs and left turns at all costs because you'll never be able to pass the parade of stressed out office workers who are in a hurry to get home and nagged by their wives.
