Los Angeles Wins 4 of 12 Worst Traffic Sports in the United States
Forbes Magazine recently posted its list of "America's 12 Worst Bottlenecks,"
and Los Angeles leads the pack with four of the twelve traffic traps
(Woo hoo! We won a prize!), while Atlanta, Chicago, and Phoenix each
tied with two hot spots apiece. The author, Robert Malone, ranked each
location based on the value of the manhours wasted at each location.
and the number-one worst location at the junction of the 405 and 101
freeways in Los Angeles wastes 27 million hours annually. Trust me: I
spent at least 15 years of my life driving past this intersection, and
can attest to its fearsome traffic jams.
So, without any additional fanfare, here is the list of America's 12 worst bottlenecks according to Forbes Magazine (click on any one to link to Forbes photo essay and read the details on each location):
