I'm glad we don't live in L.A. but this still doesn't bring me much comfort.
Drivers in and around L.A. spend more time staring at brake lights than in any other city. According to analytics firm Inrix, which calculated the average amount of time commuters spent in traffic, L.A. was the most-congested U.S. city for the sixth straight year. Commuters there spent an average of 102 hours sitting in traffic.
L.A. didn’t just top the list around the U.S. either – the city has the most traffic congestion in the entire world (just ahead of Moscow).
Here are the U.S. cities with the worst traffic:
- Los Angeles - 102 hours
- New York City - 91 hours
- San Francisco - 79 hours
- Atlanta - 70 hours
- Miami - 64 hours
- Washington DC - 63 hours
- Boston - 60 hours
- Chicago - 57 hours
- Seattle - 55 hours
- Dallas - 54 hours
Personally in my travels, Chicago was the worst, so I'm surprised to see the Windy City so far down this list.
