UK drivers spent an average of 29 hours stuck in jams last year, with only Belgian, Dutch, German and French motorists faring worse. However, the survey by traffic info firm Inrix showed that UK congestion in 2012 was 19% down on the figure for 2011 and also well down in Europe.
The London commuter zone was the worst place in the UK for congestion last year, with drivers stuck in traffic for 72 hours on average. Glasgow drivers spent 21 hours in jams down 32% on last year.
