It takes one hour to travel 1 kilometer: The jam in Shimla is bothering the people so much that it is taking an hour to travel 1 kilometer. From the 103 tunnel, if a person wants to reach the old bus stand in the morning, then he will have to leave the house one and a half hours before then only he will be able to reach his destination on time. The jam is so much that from 103 to the old bus stand, at least one hour is being taken in your vehicle.
