Cities with worst traffic jams: Is S'pore one of them?

Hate the peak-hour rush?

You are more likely to tear your hair out if you're caught in a snarl during the most congested period. And especially in countries with the worst congestion.

Commuters in Istanbul suffer the worst traffic jams overall, and the evening rush hour is no exception, according to results of a survey carried out in over 200 cities in 2014.

According to TomTom Traffic data, the average 30-minute drive in the Turkish capital is likely to take more than an hour during the evening rush.

For Los Angeles commuters, a 30-minute ride is likely to stretch to 54 minutes in the event of a congestion. The city ranks 10th in both categories - overall congestion and evening crawl.

After Istanbul, the next worst cities for after-work commute are: Moscow, Saint Petersburg and Mexico City. The cities also dominate the Top 10 list for having the worst congestion overall.

While China and Singapore were covered by the survey, many Asian countries were not.
