2013-02-06: Traffic congestion in the United States seems to have stabilized in the last several years. Texas Transportation Institute's Urban Mobility Report for the 15 largest metro areas measures average hours of delay per car commuter at 52, the same as the previous year. That is considerably below the 60 hours high of 2005. 32 Large metro areas have 37 hours of delay on average, stable too, and down from 50 hours before the recession.
