Leeds-Bradford the most congested English area
10 July 2012
The morning commute to work can be a stressful experience for many drivers, but new research has found that motorists in the Leeds-Bradford area deal with more than most.
A study by satellite navigation company TomTom, looking into traffic times across Europe, named the Yorkshire region as the seventh most congested across the continent.
Leeds-Bradford was deemed more congested than the likes of London and Stockholm with the organisation finding that Yorkshire motorists spend 86 hours a year stuck in traffic jams.
Overall, heavy traffic within the area slows down journey times by an average of 28 per cent for each venture out in the car. However, despite Yorkshire being the worst in England, the Polish capital Warsaw was dubbed the most congested city in Europe.
Harold Goddijn, chief executive officer of TomTom, added: "When we combine this travel database with our detailed real-time traffic information and routing technology, we can pin point congestion, but also guide drivers away from congested areas onto faster routes."
