NAVTEQ Cites Top 10 Most Congested Cities and Freeways in North America

In time for the holiday season, NAVTEQ Traffic.com, the leading provider of free traffic information services nationwide, helps drivers avoid the worst of the worst

CHICAGO, Nov. 22, 2010 — (PRNewswire) — NAVTEQ, the leading global provider of maps, traffic and location data enabling navigation, location-based services and mobile advertising around the world, today issued their experts' rankings of the Top 10 most congested cities and freeways in North America.

 

NAVTEQ Traffic.com® will help millions of on-the-go drivers dodge the worst of the worst traffic this holiday season via real-time traffic information available online and on their mobile phones.  NAVTEQ has more than 400 experts monitoring traffic 24/7* in 113 markets. NAVTEQ traffic operators gather more than 45 million new traffic incident records per day and these experts know that unless plans keep you close to home, there's no truly crowd-free way to travel. Airports will be clogged with 24 million passengers(1). Popular train and bus routes will be standing room only. And all of that will accommodate just 15% of those who travel to Thanksgiving dinner. The other 85% will drive, and more than half intend to make trips in excess of 60 miles(2).

While NAVTEQ Traffic.com cannot help drivers avoid traffic totally, it has cited a Top 10 List of Most Congested Cities and Freeways in North America as fuel for thought while making holiday plans.
