Report: Which city has the worst traffic in the world? First hint, it’s not in the US

So it’s the morning, or the evening, and you’re trying to battle it out during rush hour on the local interstate and low and behold, you’re stuck in a gridlock with thousands of other people trying to do the same thing as you.

Well, no matter where you are in the states, or the world, you think you have it bad? Probably not as bad as Jakarta, Indonesia, which was just given the superlative title as the city with the worst traffic in the world, according to Castrol’s Magnatec Stop-Start index. The latter is an index of data pulled from TomTom navigation users in the name of their latest product, which took into consideration the amount of times drivers came to a stop, and started moving again, keeping track of the stop-and-go actions of being in a jam. And using that data, analysts were able to come up with a list of the top 10 worst cities for traffic.

Here’s the kicker: none of these cities are in the United States. Check out the list after the jump and in addition to that, they also provided the 10 best cities for traffic.
