Drivers in Brussels face the worst traffic jams in the world

the Human City Project

Belgian drivers constantly complain about traffic jams during their daily commute. I should know, I’m sometimes one of them. Now traffic and navigation service provider INRIX has compiled a list of the most gridlocked cities in the world, and Brussels came out on top.

The second most congested city is Antwerp. Whilst this might come as a surprise to some, the highest traffic congestion in Belgium is situated between Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels. A very large number of daily commuters are stuck in this triangle. The fact that Brussels is so congested automatically influences the other two cities as well.

Take into account the dense population of Belgium, and especially the region surrounding Brussels, and you just found your winner.

The top ten according to INRIX:

  1. Brussels, Belgium
  2. Antwerp, Belgium
  3. Los Angeles, USA
  4. Milan, Italy
  5. London, U.K.
  6. Paris, France
  7. Honolulu, USA
  8. Rotterdam, Netherlands
  9. Manchester, UK
  10. San Francisco, USA
