How do Texas cities rank nationally in terms of traffic problems? | DENENA | POINTS

Pearland, TX accident lawyers answer:

Texas A&M University just released its 2011 Urban Mobility Report regarding traffic congestion levels and trends on U.S. roads. Several major Texas cities hold top spots in the rankings for traffic congestion delays and lost productivity. That’s not an honor Texas can boast about.

Some Texas cities ranking in the top 10 most congested based on 2010 data include:
* Houston
* Dallas
* Corpus Christi
* McAllen

The Report and traffic congestion rankings go back to 1982. Austin and San Antonio have dropped quite a bit in the rankings, indicating that those Texas cities may have improved traffic flow conditions. Some past Texas recipients of top 10 rankings include:
* Laredo
* Beaumont
* El Paso
* Brownsville
