Dublin is now one of the worst cities in the entire world for traffic congestion

There are only two cities on the planet that are worse off.

We often complain about how bad the traffic in the Irish capital is, but now we have the proof that our complaints are warranted, as Dublin has ranked the THIRD WORST for time lost in traffic congestion in the entire world.

Research results provided by motor data company INRIX's Global Scorecard shows an analysis of congestion and mobility trends in more than 200 cities in 38 countries around the planet.

Out of all of those cities, Dublin ranked third worst, as drivers in the capital spend on average 246 hours in their cars due to traffic congestion, coming in behind only Bogota (272 hours) and Rome (254 hours).

This is even worse than cities you might assume are worse off for traffic congestion, including London (227 hours), Paris (237 hours), New York (133 hours), or Los Angeles (128 hours).

Dublin also has the slowest downtown peak speeds in the entire world, as cars driving in the city centre tend to move at just 5.9 miles per hour. Comparatively, if you got out and walked, you'd be moving around 3.1 miles per hour.
