Miami's traffic is the 10th worst on the planet, per new study

The Top 5 most-congested U.S. cities for traffic are no surprise: Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Atlanta and Miami.

Drivers spent an average of 31 hours sat in traffic jams previous year, costing the United Kingdom more than £37.7 billion. New York City (tie) 2.

It's standard knowledge that Los Angeles traffic is the worst, but what about Minneapolis?

That makes the capital the second most congested city in Europe - behind only Moscow.

Elsewhere in the region, Lincoln's drivers spent a total of 36 hours sitting in traffic, costing the city over £127 million per year.

This takes into account direct costs such as wasted fuel and time as well as indirect consequences such as increased freighting fees being passed on to consumers.

INRIX also reports that traffic congestion costs US drivers more than $305 billion in direct and indirect costs in 2017, an increase of $10 billion from 2016, mainly due to rising costs of vehicle ownership.

INRIX found the most congested corridor in the Bay Area is eastbound Highway 24 during the afternoon commute, where drivers wasted 39 hours a year ago sitting in gridlock.

In what may come as no surprise to Bay Area commuters, a global study on traffic congestion has placed the San Francisco area near the top of the list, when it comes to gridlock.

You may remember back in 2012, it was ranked the absolute worst city for traffic in the US, even topping Los Angeles.

How Super Bowl is protecting itself from Nipplegate sequel
Last year's Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots will take on the Philadelphia Eagles on February 4 at U.S. Young Hirohito tweeted: " Justin Timberlake is going to kill it at the Super Bowl LII this year".

But while the I-5 crawl through that city north of Seattle is certainly awful, drivers on the Cross Bronx Expressway in New York City are experiencing the worst corridor anywhere for the third year in a row.

Manchester came behind London, albeit its average of 39 hours was nearly half of that recorded in the capital. Traffic congestion rates actually fell in the Texas municipalities of El Paso (-13%), Austin (-9%) and Dallas (-9%), the report found.

Call it the "Full Vancouver" - when you complain about real estate, the weather and traffic all in one conversation.

"The reason for improvements in traffic flow in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh are far from clear".
