Columbus commuters staring at a sea of brake lights during rush hour can at least take comfort that their counterparts in 47 other cities are worse off when they drive in their communities, according to a new study.
Data from Kirkland, Wash.-based Inrix Inc. released Tuesday ranked metropolitan Columbus the 48th most congested city in the nation. Highway congestion in the city, surpassed by 33rd-ranked Cincinnati and 36th-ranked Cleveland, increased 2 percent since 2006, in line with the national average, the study concluded.
The cities that ranked highest in the Inrix study were the usual suspects – Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. Washington, D.C., and Dallas made up the top five.
