The study is another indicator of Miami’s population surge since the start of the pandemic.
According to the data, Miami drivers lost 105 hours to traffic jams in 2022, up 30% since 2019.
Miami now ranks worse than Los Angeles – coming in at 9th worst for traffic congestion worldwide, and 5th worst in the U.S.
Other major U.S. cities saw the opposite of Miami last year, with less traffic than pre-pandemic times. New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and Washington D.C. all saw lower congestion in 2022 than in 2019.
The WSJ reported this week that high levels of traffic congestion in Miami and other rapidly rising sunbelt cities is “threatening growth.”
