Traffic in Los Angeles Not as Bad as Before, But Still the Worst
The 2009 Urban Mobility Report was released today, and the study gives us insight into how much time and gas we waste in traffic, according to abc7. Published by the Texas Transportation Institute, the study uses 2007 data to compare to earlier years, and while we may want to cheer that we shaved one hour from our "stuck in traffic" time from 2006 to 2007, we are still the worst in the nation when it comes to traffic.
"Drivers in the L.A. area wasted an average of 72 hours in traffic in 2006, but only spent 70 hours in traffic in 2007," and in '07 we also wasted 53 gallons of gas.
