Abu Dhabi named the least congested capital city in the world

It's official - here in Abu Dhabi, traffic is far less dense than in other cities around the world.

In fact, the UAE capital has been named as the least congested capital city in the world according to Tom Tom’s traffic index report.

We’ve all been in traffic jams at some point on the roads. Cars at a standstill, as far as the eye can see, horns beeping and everyone having a miserable time.

So you can count yourself lucky that you're here in the UAE capital and not in Bengaluru, the capital of India's southern state Karnataka.

Abu Dhabi was ranked as the 410th out of 416 cities from around the world only losing out to Almere, Dayton, Syracuse, Akron, Cadiz and Greensboro-High Point, but was the top capital.

According to the survey the day with the lowest congestion in the city is August 13 and the day it’s busiest on the roads in November 10.

The busiest time on the roads in Abu Dhabi is Sunday morning from 7am to 8am in the morning rush hour.

An average of five minutes per half hour drive is added on for drivers in Abu Dhabi when on the roads during rush hour.

A total of 541,586,465 km of road was covered to compile the data in cities across the world.
