Leaders in road congestion

Bogotá leads in the scale of losses: last year the average resident there lost 133 hours due to traffic jams. In Bucharest, there is even a little more — 134, but due to the smaller population in terms of the total scale of losses, it was put on the 2nd place. «Bronze» in terms of losses due to traffic congestion was received by New York: the same 100 hours per year as ours, but taking into account the large size of the agglomeration, the cumulative effect is greater

According to Inrix’s calculations, the average Moscow resident lost 100 hours in 2020 due to traffic jams — for example, two and a half standard working weeks. Or «watch one movie every week.» Or «exercise once a week.»

It is important to note that the scale of traffic jams in 2020 in all these cities has significantly decreased: in Moscow, a decrease of 22% was recorded, in New York by 28%, and in Paris, for example (6th place in the rating), by 47% at once.
