Report: LA tops list of cities with worst traffic

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles has the worst traffic in the nation, according to a new report.

The Los Angeles Times says LA beat out Honolulu for jam leader in the 2012 scorecard from traffic information firm INRIX.

The scorecard says the average LA driver spent 59 hours sitting in traffic last year, or about 2 ½ days.

That's nine hours more than drivers in Honolulu.

INRIX says traffic in LA got worse because the city has added about 90,000 jobs, which means more people driving. The worst time to drive home: Friday afternoon.

San Francisco was in third place for congestion, followed by Austin; New York and Bridgeport, Conn. San Jose was in seventh place, followed by Seattle, Washington D.C. and Boston.
