Study finds L.A. is the world's most traffic-clogged city

We're all used to sitting in traffic in Southern California, so it's no surprise to hear that Los Angeles leads the world when it comes to traffic-clogged cities.

Transportation analytics firm Inrix found that last year drivers spent 104 hours each driving in traffic during peak travel periods.

Behind L.A. was Moscow in second place with 91 hours, and New York in third place with 89 hours.

Half of the cities on Inrex's top 10 list were U.S. cities.  The study also found that the U.S. is the most congested developed country on the planet, with drivers averaging 42 hours per year in traffic.

Being stuck in traffic costs the average U.S. driver $1,400 last years and close to $300 billion nationwide.

Of course, people like Eric Garcetti will use these statistics as a reason for getting people out of their cars and on to mass transit.

How about we just fix the roads we have, and actually do a good job fixing them?  Maybe even build some new roads!

Please Mayor Yoga Pants, don't twist this study to your fit your wacky agenda.
