When you joke to your friends that L.A. has the worst traffic in the world, it's actually true.
For the sixth straight year, Los Angeles took the top spot on the Global Traffic Scorecard. That means the city is number one for congestion -- out of more than 1,000 different cities.
L.A. drivers spent 102 hours in gridlock last year during peak time periods, according to the transportation analytics firm Inrix.
"L.A. has a booming economy, so as the economy grows, more people have jobs, more people are on the road. Also, obviously, just the sheer number of people in the L.A. metro area adds to congestion and the sprawling metropolitan area also adds to the congestion," said Mark Burfeind, communications director for Inrix.
He said one L.A. road is especially bad.
