 U.S. Commuters: 7 billion hours sitting in traffic
   
As reported in Metro Magazine/Metro Express, traffic congestion in the U.S. has returned to pre-recession levels, with Washington D.C. topping the list, according to a new report produced by INRIX and the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI).

The 2015 Urban Mobility Scorecard reported that travel delays due to traffic congestion caused drivers to waste more than 3 billion gallons of fuel and kept travelers stuck in their cars for nearly 7 billion extra hours - 42 hours per rush-hour commuter..


The total nationwide price tag:
$160 billion, or $960 per commuter

 

Washington, D.C. tops the list of gridlock-plagued cities, with 82 hours of delay per commuter, followed by Los Angeles (80 hours), San Francisco (78 hours), New York (74 hours), and San Jose, Calif. (67 hours).

The problem has become so bad in major urban areas that drivers have to plan more than twice as much travel time as they would need to arrive on time in light traffic just to account for the effects of irregular delays such as bad weather, collisions and construction zones.

For example, drivers on America’s Top 10 worst roads waste on average 84 hours or 3.5 days a year on average in gridlock - twice the national average. Of these roads, six are in Los Angeles, two are in New York and the remaining two are in Chicago. Nine other cities have roads ranked among the 50 worst.
