We Have The World's Worst Commute. Here's How Bad It Is

For the sixth year running, Los Angeles has the worst gridlock in the world, and all that traffic takes a toll on Angelenos. But just how bad is it? According to a new study by the transportation analytics company INRIX, the average LA commuter spends 102 hours per year stuck in traffic. That's a four-day weekend getaway, two workouts a week, or 10 whole seasons of binge watching. It's not just expensive to live in Los Angeles. It's time-consuming.


But the expense is real too. According to INRIX, the wear and tear and gas guzzling involved in all that gridlock, costs $2,828 per person and a total of $19.2 billion for the region as a whole.
