HIGH WAITS ON U.S. HIGHWAYS

The latest annual report on congestion from the Texas Transportation Institute said the time spent stuck in traffic in Indianapolis, Indiana, rose 225% in 5 years to 52 hours a year, well over the 29% national average increase. Drivers in Los Angeles, California, waste 82 hours a year in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Commuters in San Jose, California, however, actually saw their time on the road decrease, while drivers in the San Francisco/Oakland, California, area; Hartford-Middleton, Connecticut; Brownsville, Texas; and Honolulu, Hawaii saw no change in their delays. Drivers in the 35 most-congested areas of the country on average waste four extra tanks of gas each year waiting in traffic.
