Netherlands has the worst traffic jams
An international report on traffic has revealed that the western conurbation in the Netherlands, known as the Randstad, plus the eastern city of Arnhem, are the most congested regions in Europe. Motorists in the Netherlands waste around 65 hours in traffic jams every year.
The worst time to travel on Dutch motorways is Tuesday afternoon between 5 and 6 o'clock. And the worst city to be in at that time is Amsterdam. The capital also heads the top ten list of worst bottlenecks, the northern ring road being most congested of all.
Inrix, an international supplier of traffic information and research, published its survey of traffic conditions in a large number of European cities on Wednesday. The survey pays particular attention to congestion in the Netherlands.
