Report ranks top 100 most congested cities and the nation's worst traffic bottlenecks
INRIX®, the leading provider of traffic information, today released the INRIX National Traffic Scorecard, the most comprehensive country-wide perspective and city-by-city analysis of one of the nation's most frustrating and intractable issues: traffic congestion. How bad is traffic overall? Which cities have the most traffic congestion? Where are the worst bottlenecks across the country? This new report, available at http://scorecard.INRIX.com, answers these questions and more.
Traffic congestion across the U.S. increased nearly 2% in 2007 over 2006 and there appears to be no relief in sight in 2008, although higher fuel prices and the economy are affecting the rate of growth. The fallout from heavy traffic congestion hits Americans hard on several different levels. With many drivers paying over $4 a gallon at the pump and roads clogged with traffic congestion averaging 60 hours a week across the nation's 100 worst bottlenecks, traffic continues to have a major impact on consumers, businesses and the American economy.
