Classify this one under NSS (No Shizz Sherlock). Apparently Los Angeles is at the top of Tom Tom’s “congestion index.”

After looking at the traffic congestion in 59 cities throughout America, Los Angeles came in at number freakin’ one. Yay! We win!

Except this kind of winning is bittersweet, especially when we are all sitting in traffic 30 minutes a day or more. At that rate, traffic is taking 90 hours a year from our regularly scheduled programs says Tom Tom.

A source told the LA Weekly that Tuedays and Thursdays are the worse days to drive in Los Angeles.

Other cities in the Top 5? Vancouver, Honolulu, San Francisco, and Seattle. Notice a trend with these cities–other than Honolulu? Places where young tech-savvy hipster demographics live.

We solved all your traffic problems; don’t move where hipsters live. You’re welcome.
