Although cars are being driven less in town centres a surge in delivery vans to take goods to homes and offices has fuelled congestion rise
La La Land, with its jam-packed freeways and driving culture despite billions being poured into rail transit, emerged from the 1,360 other cities in 38 countries to claim the worst-congestion title for the sixth consecutive year in the 2017 traffic scorecard by INRIX, a leader in transportation analytics and connected auto services.

San Francisco, for example, had the highest congestion rate on arterial and city streets during the peak commute hours, while NY holds the top spot during the daytime, the study finds.

Traffic in New Dehli has become such an issue that's there's essentially no difference between congestion during peak and non-peak hours, according to a 2017 study by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), which is a public interest research group.
As much as we all love driving, traffic is the bane of many people's existence.
LA is followed by Moscow (91 hours), NY (91 hours), Sao Paulo (86 hours) and San Francisco (79 hours). Direct costs relate to the value of fuel and time wasted, and indirect costs refer to freight and business fees from company vehicles idling in traffic.
That means the city is number one for congestion - out of more than 1,000 different cities.
