Washington, D.C., again Rated Worst for Traffic Congestion

By Alpert Schreyer on February 14, 2013

A recent study conducted by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute has named the Washington D.C area as the most congested metropolitan area in America. As reported in The Washington Post, the study found that the average driver in the Washington D.C. area burns 67 hours and 32 gallons of gas each year while sitting in traffic.

Those who live and commute in the area know how traffic congestion there contributes to loss of temper and car accidents. They see or hear of car accidents every day.

At the Maryland law firm of Alpert Schreyer, we have more than two decades of experience handling motor vehicle accident cases both in Maryland and Washington, D.C..

Just behind Washington were the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Boston. Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina was at the opposite end of the results with the least traffic congestion. The Institute’s data comes from Inrix. Inrix is responsible for most of the information used in traffic reports on TV, on radio, and on the Internet. The A&M Institute forecasts that if nothing is done about congestion in cities across the nation, by 2020, the average American motorist will waste an additional six gallons of gas each year by spending seven more hours in traffic.

The Institute now uses a new “Planning Time Index,” comparing the normal amount of time it would take to make your commute in light traffic to the extra time you would need to allow to get to work on time in congested traffic. No place is worse than Washington. Baltimore ranks 15th among large metropolitan areas.

If you or a loved one has been injured, or if a loved one has died in a car accident due to another’s negligent actions, the Maryland motor vehicle attorneys at Alpert Schreyer want you to know that you have the right to compensation for your losses. Call us today at (844) 632-7274 to learn more.
