- Top Congested Spots: London took the not-so-coveted top spot (no shock there then), with Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh, a whiskers' breath behind in second place
- Biggest increase in traffic congestion: Oxford and now also in third 'congestion' place. A surprising result for our 'city of dreaming spires' - back of the class please!
- Just behind Oxford is Belfast where 31% of roads are classed as congested, followed by Bradford (30%), Manchester (30%) and Birmingham (28%).
- The least congested big towns or cities are Northampton, Warwick and Chesterfield, all with congestion rates of less than 10%.
While we can't promise you a congestion free journey we can suggest that a slap up meal is added to your city itinerary with the pounds saved by buying a car hire excess policy direct from iCarhireinsurance.com, from £2.99 daily or £39.99 for an annual policy.
Gridlock is bad enough to deal with but at least the pill is sweetened if you haven't spent up to £17 a day on excess insurance from the rental desk.
