London Congestion Worst In The UK
Friday 6th June 2014
New research shows that central London's rush hour traffic is indeed the worst in the UK.
The average speed for drivers in Westminster during 'peak times' is just over 10 miles per hour according to analysis by Direct Line Drive Plus.
After Westminster, the slowest rush-hour speeds were to be found in
Lancaster (10.88mph), Cambridge (11.30 mph) and Hereford (11.49mph).
Peterborough and York had the fastest rush hour speeds.
Overall, the typical rush-hour traffic slows speeds down by an average of 3.6mph.
Thursdays, rather than Mondays or Fridays, appears to be the worst day for congestion.
