While the others on this list have either seen improved traffic or annual hours spent in traffic that have stayed the same, the million and a half regional commuters in Washington, DC, spent three more hours in traffic in 2007 than they did in 2006. The TTI reported that a traveler in the US capital spent 62 hours in traffic in 2007, up from 59.
