Seattle commuters spend 44 hours in traffic a year – Puget Sound Business Journal

Seattle drivers are spending 44 hours a year stuck in traffic, which is the same amount they spent idling the previous year, and the 12th-worst level in the country.

The good news is the commute isn’t getting worse. Seattle drivers spent the same amount of time stuck in traffic in 2010 as they did the previous year, according to a new Urban Mobility Report for 2010 compiled by the Texas Transportation Institute.

Drivers in Washington, D.C., spend the most time stuck in traffic — 74 hours per year — among all the nation’s very large cities, followed by Chicago (71 hours) and the Los Angeles area (64 hours).
