Study: L.A. has World’s Worst Traffic Congestion
L.A.'S TRAFFIC CONGESTION IS WORLD'S WORST FOR SIXTH STRAIGHT YEAR, STUDY SAYS
(CNN) – Los Angeles has the world’s worst traffic congestion; again.
According to the 2017 traffic scorecard by Inrix, a leader in transportation analytics and connected car services; out of over 1,300 cities in 38 countries, Los Angeles claims the worst-congestion title for the sixth consecutive year.
According to Inrix, drivers in and around the City of Los Angeles spent 102 hours battling traffic congestion in 2017 during peak hours.
By contrast, New York City motorists spent 91 hours battling peak-hour congestion.
New York was number three on the list and Moscow was number two.
Inrix says it calculated the results by combining anonymous, real-time global positioning system probe data from millions of connected cars and devices with real-time traffic flow data and other criteria.
