What TomTom's New Traffic Index Says About Canadian Traffic Congestion
Think traffic congestion is getting worse? According to TomTom, you're right. You spent more time in traffic this year, than you did last year by about 2 hours.
TomTom recently released its 5th annual Traffic Index, a report that uses data based on actual GPS measurements from over 200 cities worldwide to help gauge traffic congestion levels. And, while there are certainly cities experiencing far worse traffic congestion levels than found in Canadian cities-Istanbul, Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro top the list-traffic congestion in Canada isn't getting any better, and in many cities is getting worse.
