Think your commute is bad? Here are America’s 50 Worst Commutes


Traffic sucks and we all hate it. Being stuck in traffic for multiple hours a day, five days a week has to be one of the worst experiences for anyone.

Now, while we can’t do anything about it, we can at least help you figure out how bad your commute is compared to someone else.

Using data from traffic-tracking firm INRIX, which includes information from 4 million vehicles across the country using GPS and smartphone data, the folks over at Daily Beast went through the painful task of putting together a list of all of America’s worst traffic commutes.
