The World’s Most Congested Cities

How much time do you think you’ve spent in traffic this year? Too much we expect! in fact the average driver spends over 32 hours per year stuck in traffic jams a year.

Whether it’s the slow moving A400 Tottenham Court Road or the Aston Expressway in Birmingham, UK cities certainly get off lightly when it comes to traffic in comparison to the commuters of L.A and Moscow.

But which city has the ultimate distinction of having the world’s most horrific traffic? Well, Reg Transfers used the Inrix Global Scorecard 2016 data to reveal the top congested cities around the world in their new interactive map.

Here’s the top 10 most congested cities:

  1. Los Angles — 104.1 hours spent in congestion per year,
  2. Moscow — 91.4 hours spent in congestion per year
  3. New York — 89.4 hours spent in congestion per year
  4. San Francisco — 82.6 hours spent in congestion per year
  5. Bogota — 79.8 hours spent in congestion per year
  6. Sao Paulo — 77.2 hours spent in congestion per year
  7. London — 73.4 hours spent in congestion per year
  8. Magnitogorsk — 71.1 hours spent in congestion per year
  9. Atlanta — 70.8 hours spent in congestion per year
  10. Paris — 65.3 hours spent in congestion per year

U.S cities are the worst on average as 11 out of the top 25 and each American spends over an hour stuck in traffic per week! London is in 7th place but there isn’t any surprise there! Being stuck in traffic cost drivers more that £1,911 each and more than £6 billion across the city as a whole. Where else in the world are the most congested cities?
