The Worst Cities In The World For Rush Hour Traffic
How bad is your daily commute? Do you try to get to your desk early or leave late to avoid traffic? You're not alone: according to TomTom, Planet Earth's commuters waste an average of 100 hours each year sitting in their cars during crunch times -- and that's just during the evening rush. But America has it pretty good. Of the ten most congested cities on the planet, only one is located in the U.S.
The worst of the bunch is Istanbul, where commuters spend an extra 125 hours annually stuck in evening traffic, and travel times double during the post-work rush. Most of the other ten traffic magnets are located in the former Soviet Union or Brazil, with Brazil alone taking three of the top spots.
