World's Worst Traffic Jams
Maybe everyone’s gazing out their car windows at Chicago’s legendary architecture. It would help explain Chicago’s awful traffic jams, which include America’s second-worst single bottleneck (at the junction of the Dan Ryan Expressway and Canalport Avenue/Cermak Road). This ignominious gridlock contributes to 189 million hours, 129 million gallons of excess fuel, and $4.2 billion of wasted resources. Thankfully, Chicago has The Loop.
