I just saw a story from Yahoo talking about the 10 US cities with the worst traffic, and Austin comes in at number 4 (ahead of even New York City).
The story details what all of us know. For more than a decade, Austin has been among the fastest growing cities in the country, but there hasn’t been a corresponding increase in road infrastructure to keep up with our growing population. The result was a “congestion score” that was over three times the national average.
I’m not really surprised by the finding that Austin is among the worst cities for traffic. But I am shocked that neither Houston nor Dallas made the list. I’ve driven in both of them during rush hour, and I’d take Austin every day of the week.
