Would it be fair to say that in a negative situation you would not use gran?
So, it would not be un gran atasco, but un atasco grande? (a big traffic jam)
Well, if the noun used is a negative word itself, e.g. atasco, problema... then both gran and grande will be negative, so, the negativity is brought more by the noun, not the adjective.
