The most congested cities in Europe…and in America

March 17, 2011

In my previous post, I mentioned the results released by Tomtom on the most congested cities in Europe. Tomtom is a manufacturer of navigation systems used in cars. Inrix, another manufacturer of navigation systems for cars, regularly publishes a list of the most congested cities in Europe and United States. Global position systems (gps) allow to accurately follow the route and speed of cars, and to assess on which road and in which cities car traffic is slow. In 2010, Inrix’international comparison rankss the metropolitan areas of Los Angeles and New York at the top of the list, as the most congested cities where cars travel at the slowest average speed. Paris comes third, the slowest in Europe. After the Chicago and Washington DC metropolitan areas, London is the second most congested city in Europe. Contrary to the Tomtom’s ranking, Bruxelles is not among of the most congested cities in Europe. Rome and Madrid are not ranked.
