According to a report by Inrix, Washington, D.C. ranks as sixth worst for traffic congestion in the United States.

Last year, D.C. ranked as third worst in the country for traffic congestion. This year, we ranked as sixth worst, 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 better than before. Not to mention that the Capitol City's global ranking fell (15 in 2016; 18 in 2017), so that's an improvement. Albeit a small one, but an improvement nonetheless. Apparently, D.C. drivers spent 63 hours stuck in traffic last year -- national average is 41 hours per year. Now, think about that for a second. That's more than two and a half days spent stuck in a car, just waiting for traffic to move. Yeah, um, I'll pass. Thanks.
