Hate Detroit traffic? Many major United States cities have it worse, study says
Moscow drivers came in second with 91 hours spent in traffic, followed by NY commuters with 89 hours, according to the traffic scorecard compiled by Inrix.
In the results compiled after the firm tracked a year's worth of traffic in 390 cities, Los Angeles emerged as the only USA city in the top 15.
Last year, Greater Boston drivers spent an average of 58 hours in traffic during peak periods, and all that gridlock added up to some big direct and indirect costs - an average of $1,759 per driver, and a total of almost $2.9 billion to the metro area at large.
Belgians spent an average of 21 hours in traffic jams previous year. San Francisco drivers were stuck in traffic an average of 83 hours previous year.
The U.S. accounted for more than half of the top 25 cities worldwide with the worst traffic congestion in 2016 and is the most congested developed country on the planet.

The study found that drivers are losing out on fuel costs and their time, and the congestion is also affecting their productivity. Only New York City, Moscow, and (of course) Los Angeles fared worse. The top five fastest non-congested speeds during the peak period on highways were all in the South. Greensboro, NC took the top spot at 70 miles per hour.
He said it was not just about building new roads, but thinking about "smarter" ways to improve congestion, such as encouraging remote working and flexible working hours to spread the loads at peak times. Roads within the city aren't far behind, at 21 percent.
Istanbul has also seen a modest easing of traffic congestion because authorities have made a point to provide more real-time traffic data to drivers.
Those in Kalamazoo spent on average about 2 hours in congested traffic, which put the city at 1,006th in the world and 223rd stateside.

The survey also ranked US highways for congestion.
He added that economic growth had also been strong in major cities like Los Angeles and NY. Moscow came in second place with 91; NY nabbed third place with 89.
Drivers here were delayed an average 55 hours previous year in peak times, ranking between Jakarta and Zurich, the report found.
