This week, we released the seventh annual INRIX Traffic Scorecard. Utilizing trillions of traffic data points gathered from crowd-sourced traffic information, the Scorecard is the world’s most in-depth, data-driven look at traffic congestion statistics and data in metropolitan cities in the United States.

Seattle fans are still raving about this year’s win over the Denver Broncos, unfortunately they are doing it while sitting in traffic. In 2013, Seattle commuters spent a whopping 37 hours behind the wheel. This number is up just two hours from 2012.

Commuters also suffered longer drive times while driving in and out of Seattle, whether going to and from work or to a Hawk’s game. According to Seattle’s traffic data, drivers experienced a 19 percent increase in travel time due to bad traffic conditions. For Seattle fans, this means planning ahead to avoid spending kick-off sitting in traffic.

If you’re a data geek or just want to know what you can expect from traffic in your city, head on over to the Traffic Scorecard to see where your city ranks. Be sure to check out the top 25 U.S. cities with the worst traffic below.
