We know that traffic is bad out there, but according to the Seattle Times
a new study says Seattle drivers lost an average of 48 hours due to congestion in 2011. That dubious figure ties us with Philadelphia for ninth place. Whoo hoo, we made the Top 10!
The area that wastes the most time stuck in traffic was Washington DC., with L..A. and San Francisco not too far behind.
So if you are a daily commuter around here, keep up those deep breathing techniques, or get started on some soon.
