LA tops list of most traffic-clogged cities in the world
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11/AP) - When it comes to getting stuck in traffic on the way to and from work, Los Angeles leads the world.
Transportation analytics firm Inrix says drivers in the car-crazy California metropolis spent 104 hours last year in congestion. That beat second-place Moscow at 91 hours and third-place New York at 89.
Inrix says the U.S. had half of the top 10 most congested cities in the world.
The U.S. was the most traffic-clogged developed country with drivers nationwide averaging 42 hours stuck in traffic last year.
San Francisco was the fourth-most congested city, while Bogota, Colombia, was fifth. Sao Paulo, London, Atlanta, Paris and Miami rounded out the top 10.
Traffic jams cost drivers in the U.S. nearly $300 billion last year, or an average of $1,400 each, Inrix said.
