California drivers – know that your complaints are legitimate. But, at least you don’t live in Canada.
Los Angeles earned the top spot on the TomTom North American Congestion Index, as drivers average 20 minutes of delay daily on the city’s 13-mile stretch of Interstate 405. The study utilized information from millions of anonymous real-time driving patterns gathered from mobile navigation customers to calculate its results.
What’s most surprising is that only two of the top five cities for gridlock were in The United States. San Francisco came in at No. 3, but the rest of the top five can be found in Canada. Vancouver can in at No. 2, Montreal at No. 4 and Toronto at No.5. The rest of the top 10 are all U.S. cities: Washington, Seattle, New York, Chicago and Miami respectively.
