I'm not sure everyone can follow you... In French, we say circulation (ringlus) for traffic (liiklus). And we say bottling (villimine) for traffic jam (liiklusummik). But anyway, I don't think villimine translates as traffic jam in any context.

Well, there have been several semantic leaps in this thread lately. We went from kirst to süda although they have no semantic connection in Estonian either - just that both can be associated with the English word "chest" in its two different meanings. (Kirst is a chest for storing items, like a treasure chest or dowry chest; süda is that muscle in your body's chest that pumps blood... but in Estonian that type of chest is rind not kirst.) :D But it is a "word association" game after all.... I suppose anything that pops into someone's head is fair game! Though it would be better to say this one as

villimine
bottling

and then I would continue the word association game with

punavein
red wine
