The world’s most congested cities


 

Where does South Africa rank?

Cape Town surpassed Johannesburg as the most congested city in South Africa in 2013. It’s hung onto this infamous title ever since.

RegTransfers UK, using data from Inrix Global Traffic Scorecard, created an interactive map of the world’s most congested cities. The report looks at average hours spent in traffic of 1064 cities in 38 countries, as well as the percentage of time people spend in traffic.

SA makes the worlds list

#28 Cape Town with 49.1 hours spent in traffic each year.

#38 Johannesburg with 46.8 hours spent in traffic per year.

These are the top 10 most congested cities on the planet:

1  Los Angeles – 104.1 hours spent in congestion per year

2  Moscow – 91.4 hours spent in congestion per year

3  New York – 89.4 hours spent in congestion per year

4  San Francisco – 82.6 hours spent in congestion per year

5  Bogota – 79.8 hours spent in congestion per year

6  Sao Paulo – 77.2 hours spent in congestion per year

8  Atlanta- 70.8 hours spent in congestion per year

9  Paris – 65.3 hours spent in congestion per year

10  Miami –  64.8 hours spent in congestion per year

Los Angeles is the world’s most gridlocked city, with drivers spending 104 hours of their lives in traffic in 2016 during peak time; that’s about 4 days spent stuck in traffic jams.

America accounts for 11 of the top 25 cities worldwide with the worst traffic.
