The 3rd worst traffic in the world isn’t an excuse
A recent survey by one of the world’s leading transport data firms -- INRIX -- confirmed what every Dublin motorist has known for years. Dublin is one of the worst cities in the world for traffic.
Based on data gathered during a massive worldwide survey, it was estimated that the average Dublin commuter -- going through the gauntlet that is inner city Dublin at peak times -- spends an average of 246 hours sitting in traffic, per year!
That’s the equivalent of 10 whole days spent listening to 2FM, in a stationary car.
With this in mind, it seems like road traffic accidents happening during peak commuting times is almost inevitable.
Boredom, frustration and road rage can be contributing factors in a road user allowing their concentration to lapse. It's understandable, right?
Well, we don't think so.
