Report Confirms What You Already Know - Washington Drivers Have the Worst Commute in the Country

The Washington DC area has the dubious distinction of being rated number one in traffic congestion in the nation according to the recently released annual report from the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.  The report introduced the Planning Time Index to help drivers estimate how long a trip will take. In Washington, the report suggests allowing three hours for a half-hour trip to ensure on-time arrival 19 out of 20 times.  Anyone who travels regularly in the region knows first-hand about these kinds of delays.
