NORTH TEXAS — For most people living in big cities, traffic is just an unfortunate part of daily life.

And traffic data company INRIX just released its traffic scorecard to determine the most gridlocked cities in the country.

There are no surprises at the top of the list are the usual suspects — LA, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Houston and New York dominate the list of average time wasted in traffic.

But when the list gets broken down into the worst traffic filled roads in the country, DFW makes its first appearance at number 25 on the list.

According to INRIX, the seven-mile stretch of I-30 from Jim Miller Road to Griffin Street is officially the most nightmarish situation for drivers in DFW — with a measly peak average speed of 26 miles per hour.

Ranking 46th on the list is another seven-mile section. This time of I-35E from Mockingbird Lane to I-30, which has an average peak speed of 30 miles per hour.

But the best of the worst roads in DFW is on Highway 121 between Highway 26 and Bedford Road — topping out at a peak average speed of 56 miles per hour.

And just know, it could always be worse, much worse. The worst stretch of traffic hell in the country comes courtesy of Route 101 in Los Angeles. Drivers are forced to suffer through 26 miles at an average peak speed of just 26 miles an hour.
