European drivers while away up to 66 hours a year stuck in traffic jams, a British study revealed Thursday.
Belgian motorists topped the traffic jam chart with an average 55 hours spent in roadblocks last year, while drivers in London squandered a whopping 66 hours sat in busy roads, data compiled by traffic information company INRIX showed.
While British drivers spent an overall annual average of 32 hours in traffic, all 18 of the UK cities analyzed by the Manchester-based firm experienced a decline in congestion since 2010.
INRIX Europe senior vice president Stuart Marks said, "So goes traffic, so goes the economy."
He added, "Traffic congestion is an excellent economic indicator telling us whether people are going to work, businesses are shipping products and consumers are spending money."
