(LATIMES) — Yet again, Southern California has reclaimed the dubious distinction of having the worst traffic in the United States.
Drivers in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana region spent 81 hours idling in traffic last year, the most of any U.S. metropolitan area, according to a new study from the data company Inrix.
The area also has four of the world’s most congested freeway segments. Those are the eastbound 101 Freeway between Topanga Canyon Boulevard and Vignes Street; the 5 Freeway between Highway 133 in Orange County and Olympic Boulevard in Los Angeles; the 10 Freeway between the city of Santa Monica and Alameda Street; and the westbound 101 Freeway between the 60 Freeway and Haskell Avenue.
