Here is some interesting data:
Vehicle ownership is rising 15 to 20 percent annually in much of the developing world due to increasing urban wealth (World Bank, 2002). Yet most countries have not matched this growth with parallel expansion of transportation infrastructure, including roads, public transport, and traffic management systems.

In the world as a whole, the number of vehicles per 1,000 persons has risen from 36 in 1960 to 123 in 2000. The U.S. number is 778. If the world had one-half the ratio of the U.S., the total number of vehicles would be 2.4 billion instead of 752 million. It will be moving towards that level as developing nations get wealthier, if they do!

Apart from this: The United States is home to the largest passenger vehicle market of any country, which is a consequence of the fact that it has the largest Gross Domestic Product of any country in the world. Overall, there were an estimated 243,023,485 registered passenger vehicles in the United States according to a 2004 DOT study.
Then these conditions are inevitable unless & until there is expansion of transportation infrastructure, including roads, public transport, and traffic management systems.
