According to a report by Inrix, Baltimore ranks as 36th worst for traffic congestion in the United States. So, it's not terrible, but not great either ...

Baltimore ranked as 36th worst in the country for traffic congestion, according to a report by Inrix Inc., a company that specializes in traffic analytics. So ... that's a good thing, I guess. Right? I mean, it's not awful. It could be a lot worse. Besides, Baltimore's global ranking fell (218 in 2016; 252 in 2017), so that's an improvement. Apparently, Denver drivers spent 27 hours stuck in traffic last year -- national average is 41 hours per year. Now, think about that for a second. That's a little more than a full day spent stuck in a car, just waiting for traffic to move.

What doesn't come as a shock is that Los Angeles has the worst traffic, and not even just in the United States, but worldwide, too. New York and San Francisco (also not very surprising) came in second and third in the U.S., respectively.
