New York City is the worst city in the country for driving, with the average resident spending 236 hours (nearly 10 days) a year in rush hour traffic, the most of any city, according to a new study from the route-planning site Circuit. USA.
To compile the rankings, the company took into account five key factors in each city: time spent during rush hour per year; time spent in traffic jams per year; money spent on fuel due to traffic jams per year; speed in the last mile and the number of fatal accidents.
New York topped the list last year and also ranked low on a list of the worst cities for delivery drivers.
