Traffic Congestion Getting Worse
"Los Angeles heads the list of most congested cities in the study. The average 25-minute commute in Los Angeles stretches to 43 minutes during periods of congestion, meaning drivers spend about 90 hours a year stuck in traffic. Next, in order, are San Francisco, Denver, Miami, Chicago and Phoenix.The problem is not limited to urban centers. Drivers in Orlando, Sacramento and Austin, Texas, waste more time in traffic than do New York City drivers, who spend an extra 43 hours yearly in travel time, the study shows."
