Worst Traffic in America

Apparently drivers in Sacramento, California spend 13 hours a year in traffic. in Raleigh, N.C. they spend 12 hours a year in traffic. It jumps to 41 hours a year in Washington D.C. This horrible traffic contributes to destroying the ozone layers. The air pollution alone increases risks for heart disease and stroke, lung disease, and traffic noise has even been linked to contributing to ADHD in children.

Living near a busy road can cause enough lung damage to trigger asthma, which shows that traffic pollution can be just as bad as second hand smoke.
