In this photo taken Nov. 21, 2012, a woman waits in heavy traffic in Caracas, Venezuela. On the chaotic streets of Venezuela's capital of 6 million people, car stereos thump loudly with salsa and reggaeton tunes, while motorcycle taxi drivers honk in high-pitched shrieks as they zip through bumper to bumper traffic at rush hour. Growing numbers of Venezuelans are saying they’re fed up with the noise that they say is getting worse, and the numbers of complaints to the authorities have risen in recent years.
