Our Michigan motor vehicle accident attorneys recently came across an interesting report released by *TomTom that measured traffic congestion in more than 200 U.S. cities. The study revealed that the City of Detroit is ranked as the 29th most traffic congested city. In fact, the overall congestion level for Detroit, Michigan is 18%. This was an increase of 5% from last year’s data.
The report was based on 2014 data and took into account local roads and highways.
Other interesting traffic facts the report revealed about Detroit, Michigan include:
Unfortunately with increased traffic not only comes more time being on the road, but also more car accidents. And with traffic slowly increasing every year in the city, it’s important that drivers are always following the rules of the road and not driving distracted.
Distracted driving or driver inattention is in fact the leading cause of most crashes and near-crashes, especially when there is traffic congestion.
