Honolulu ranks No. 2 for worst traffic in the nation

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Honolulu has taken the No. 2 spot for the most traffic-jammed cities in the U.S. in 2013, falling right behind Los Angeles, according to a new scorecard from INRIX, a traffic information and driver services company. 

The INRIX annual scorecard reported Honolulu drivers spend an average of nearly 60 hours a year sitting in their cars, up 10 hours from the 2012 scorecard. Commuters experienced a 30 percent increase in travel time due to bad traffic conditions, according to the company's website. For example, a 30-minute drive to the USS Arizona Memorial would take an extra 10 minutes, and an hour-long bus ride to Waikiki would take 80 minutes. 

Other top congested cities include San Francisco, New York and Seattle.
