This week, we released the seventh annual INRIX Traffic Scorecard. Utilizing trillions of traffic data points gathered from crowd-sourced traffic information, the Scorecard is the world’s most in-depth, data-driven look at traffic congestion statistics and data in metropolitan cities in the United States.
There is good news and bad news for commuters in Washington, D.C. Good news is traffic conditions have improved from 2012 to 2013. Unfortunately, the bad news is that DC commuters still spent an entire week of vacation on the road in traffic; that’s 40 hours sitting in a car going really slow.
Additionally, DC commuters experienced a 16 percent increase in overall travel time due to bad traffic. So what used to be a 45 minute commute from Herndon, Virginia to the Nation’s Capital is only about seven minutes more than what it used to be.
If you’re a data geek or just want to know what you can expect from traffic in your city, head on over to the Traffic Scorecard to see where your city ranks. Be sure to check out the top 25 U.S. cities with the worst traffic below.
