Traffic is the daily commuter's worst enemy. And nowhere in the country is it worse than Los Angeles, according to analytics firm Inrix.
Drivers in and around L.A. spend more time staring at brake lights than in any other city.
These rankings were done by calculating the average amount of time commuters spent in traffic, and 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
Our traffic in the D.C. region certainly hasn't gotten any better. Perhaps the traffic in the other cities has gotten a lot worse?
