How much of our lives do we spend sitting in traffic?
Last year, data gathered on American’s driving patterns showed that on average, we lose 36 hours on the road because of congested lanes.
So where are the most congested places in the country? You probably won’t be surprised to find that some Florida roads made the list. IN this study (by INRIX), US-17 South and I-95 North in Miami both made the list of most congested roads.
Of note to us in Central Florida, I-4 made the list, as well. The slowest travel on I-4 is found near Beachline Expressway. Drivers lose about 74 hours sitting in traffic in this area.
The worst road in the country to drive on is, not surprisingly, in Los Angeles. (I’m hearing the Californians in my head right now on “SNL.”) I-5 South leads the congestion list leaving drivers in traffic for 89 lost hours each year.
