According to a recent study by TomTom Navigation System, Philadelphia traffic is significant. For the second year in a row, the metro Philadelphia area ranked in the top 20 North American cities with the most traffic congestion. In 2011, Philadelphia ranked 16th in the nation. The City improved slightly this year to 17th in the nation.
Traffic does not only cause motorists to waste time and be delayed. Traffic can also be a significant safety threat. Some drivers may become impatient and other drivers may become distracted as they sit in traffic. Either scenario can be dangerous when there are so many cars in such close proximity.
