2018 Global Traffic Scorecard

Global Traffic SurveyThe results of the 2018 Global Traffic Scorecard have been released.  The score card, produced by INRIX, is an analysis of congestion and mobility trends in more than 200 cities, across 38 countries.

The top three worst cities were Moscow, Istanbul and Bogota

Sydney was 13th, Melbourne was 17th and Brisbane was 24th.

Surprisingly Los Angeles is not in the top 25 nor is Dublin which had the slowest travel speed of 9.5 km/hr in their city centre.

They don’t just measure the worse travel speeds. One factor that they take into account is the difference in travel speeds on the roads between the peak time and the non-peak time which is a measure of just how bad the peak period is.
