Can You Guess Philly's Most Traffic Congested Day?



    NBC10 Philadephia
    There is a crash on Interstate 91 North in Middletown.

    So you may think that Philly's one of the United States' most congested cities when it comes to traffic, but where it ranks as such may surprise you.

    Philadelphia is actually the 18th most traffic congested city in the country, according to the TomTom Traffic Index.

    As you can probably guess, Monday mornings and Friday evenings are peak travel times for Philadelphians and Friday, June 7, 2013 was the most congested day of the year (we're still trying to figure out why).

    More interesting information provided by the Index? If you have a 30 minute commute, you're spending 71 hours a year in traffic.

    Wow, we can think of a million other things we'd rather be doing.

    As for the most traffic congested city, Los Angeles takes the cake, followed by San Fran, Honolulu and Seattle. The TomTom Index says that Indianapolis has the least traffic congestion.
