For those living in the Pacific Northwest, it should be no surprise to see Portland and Seattle among the cities with the worst traffic in the nation.

The TomTom Index of Traffic ranks Portland as the 9th worst city, while Seattle placed 4th on the list.

The new survey ranked cities based on the ones with the most traffic-clogged highways. It estimated it takes about 30 percent longer for drivers in the top cities to get where you need to go due to traffic.

The survey found Los Angeles had the worst traffic in the nation, with San Francisco and New York rounding out the top three. Check out the full list on TomTom's website.
