Whether you drive, bike, or take public transit in Ottawa, you know that your daily commute comes with a slew of daily frustrations as well. From buses that simply don’t show up to dense Huntclub West traffic to a sea of commuters who seemingly don’t follow the rules of the road, navigating your way through the capital can be tough sometimes. That’s why we’ve gathered some funny and relatable Ottawa driving memes to give you a little laughter amidst all of those frustrations. 

Between potholes that are big enough to be considered sinkholes and actual sinkholes, certain Ottawa roads can really do a number on your car.

Finding a good parking spot downtown is a myth, but that doesn’t excuse the numerous vehicles that are spotted parking in bike lanes, bus lanes, and other non-parking spots around the city.  

It seems that however you chose to get around in the capital, there’s something wacky going on to raise an eyebrow at.

So if you’ve ever been cut off in the left turning lane, questioned how your Uber driver got their job, been nearly hit by someone rolling through a stop sign, or taken hours to get to a destination 20 minutes away, this one's for you.
