    1 hasty- adjective rush- noun/verb
    2 congested- busy (traffic, people, etc) saturated- cannot take any more stuffed- filled physically (stomach, etc)
    3 volume
    4 commuter- travels a distance to work passanger- anyone travelling passer-by- someone who happens to be at the scene of something accidentally pedestrian- someone walking in the street
    5 Why not indeed? We just don't use the term, that's all
    6 They could bump if moving very slowly, when parking for instance
    7 Skid is specific for this sort of movement
