It’s called the Global Traffic score-card. The company that looks at 1,360 cities a round the world and what they do is look at who spends the most time on the road during the commute. And according to transportation date company INRIX, The 10 Worst Cities For Traffic:
1 Los Angeles
2 New York City (tie)
2 Moscow (tie)
