    Hello

    Would you please tell me if there is any difference between the three sentences?

    -I got caught in the traffic jam yesterday.
    -I got stuck in the traffic jam yesterday.
    -I was stuck in the traffic jam yesterday.

    Thanks a lot.

    Great question!
    They are all correct.
    The one thing I would change is taking out the word "jam."
    It’s not wrong the way it is, it just sounds more natural if you just say "traffic."

    -I got caught in traffic yesterday.
    -I got stuck in traffic yesterday.
    -I was stuck in traffic yesterday.

    Hoped that helped!
    Best!

    Yep, and no real difference in meaning between the three.
