Los Angeles Traffic Congestion World's Worst Again, Report Says

Los Angeles Traffic Congestion World's Worst Again, Report Says

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.

Too bad it's against the law now in Washington state to look at your mobile device while you're behind the wheel, otherwise you could read, again, about how bad traffic congestion is in Seattle - while sitting in Seattle traffic.

Despite the scale of the congestion problem, three of Scotland's big cities saw major improvements in traffic flow following heavy investment in road infrastructure.

NY was Number 3 on the INRIX list.

Rasual Butler and Leah LaBelle (2018), former National Basketball Association player and singer wife
She was on the third season of " American Idol " in 2004 where she finished 12th in the contest. She was later named as his wife, Leah LaBelle , by Butler's former team the Miami Heat .

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. The study found that traffic congestion cost USA motorists almost $305 billion in 2017, an average of $1,445 per driver.

You may remember back in 2012, it was ranked the absolute worst city for traffic in the USA, even topping Los Angeles.

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.

US users can even bolt a full home service to Alexa, and it surely won't be long before the same is true here. But that all depends on how quickly both Google and Amazon can establish ecosystems in consumers' homes.

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.

On average, Parisians spend about 154 hours a year stuck in traffic, according to TomTom's Index.

Dallas traffic makes you want to scream, right?
