The Hague has the worst traffic congestion in the Netherlands, the annual TomTom Traffic Index shows.

Dutch satnav maker TomTom, which monitors traffic flow in cities around the world, found that an average trip by car in The Hague now takes 28% more time because of slow moving traffic and congestion. That is a rise of one percentage point on a year ago.

The Hague is followed by Haarlem, also on 28%, Leiden with 27% and Amsterdam and Arnhem both on 24%. The Amsterdam congestion rate has actually dropped one percentage point on a year ago, whereas in Arnhem it has risen by two points.

The list is headed by Mumbai, followed by Bogota and Lima.
