How much time do you think you’ve spent in traffic this year? Too much we expect! in fact the average driver spends over 32 hours per year stuck in traffic jams a year. Shocking eh?

Whether it’s the slow moving A400 Tottenham Court Road or the Aston Expressway in Birmingham, UK cities certainly get off lightly when it comes to traffic in comparison to the commuters of L.A and Moscow.

But which city has the ultimate distinction of having the world’s most horrific traffic? Well, RegTransfers have used the Inrix Global Scorecard 2016 data to create an interactive map of the world’s most congested cities.
