Is Your City One Of the Most Congested In North America?
June 11, 2014
By capturing anonymous travel time information, Tom Tom, a manufacturer of in-car navigation systems has been able to gather real time data on travel times in all the locations they serve. Using this data and comparing travel times during rush hours and non-peak hours they were able to compile a list of the most congested cities in Canada and the US. It may come as no surprise to some that Florida cities appeared twice in the top ten most congested cities list.
Understanding that the most direct route isn’t always the fastest route, Tom Tom has also been able to use the information gathered to suggest alternate travel routes for their users that save time and gas. By using alternate routes, drivers may also avoid the anger and frustration that can tempt them to engage in risky driving behaviors that could cause a crash.
