Brussels

The trouble with European cities is that most of them were laid out long before the advent of the automobile. Little wonder, then, that nearly all of them suffer from terrible traffic congestion. But which is the most jammed of all of them?

Brussels. The Belgian capital is also the seat of NATO, the European Union and countless other international organizations. And this year it's been rated as the most congested city in Europe. Traffic in the UK is hardly any better with three cities listed in the top 10 – second only to France, which features four.

The ratings were conducted by TomTom. The GPS company compiles data from individual units once they're connected to the internet for updates, and calculates how much time was spent citing in traffic jams. Big Daddy is watching, but at least he can give us some useful information once in a while.
