And the Award for Worst Traffic Goes to…

Vancouver, Canada, has the worst traffic of any North American city according to the latest TomTom Traffic Index rankings. Los Angeles takes second place.

“Vancouver has the worst traffic congestion in North America. Worse than Toronto, worse than New York, worse even than Los Angeles,” writes the Huffington Post.

“That's according to the TomTom Traffic Index, which ranked the west coast city worse than all of North America's major cities in the second quarter of 2013, in a comparison of non-congested travel times against peak hours.”

“The study said that an average drive in Vancouver takes 36 per cent longer than when traffic is flowing freely, a 2.8 per cent jump over the same period last year.”

“TomTom arrives at its rankings by analyzing data from millions of GPS users around the world.”
