But not in a good way. A study showed that the Washington area (tied with Chicago) has the worst traffic congestion. You can read the article here.
The worst part for me was this:
"The most sophisticated number crunching done on traffic congestion says the average Washington area driver loses 70 hours a year - almost three full days - crawling along in traffic, tying the region with Chicago for worst in the country."
Know what? I spend about 30 minutes in my car going each direction, which equates to about an hour per day. I do that five days a week, fifty-two weeks a year and therefore I spend around 260 hours in my car each year. That's over TEN DAYS and almost four times the DC average!
