INRIX Gridlock Index Drives Optimism for Economy

The INRIX Gridlock Index shows drivers spent less time in traffic in December of 2012 compared to the same period one year ago.  “For the first time in several years, we’ve avoided a complete freefall in December traffic congestion,” said Bryan Mistele, CEO of INRIX. “The results suggest the economy finally may be turning the corner.”  The December numbers follow a 15 percent increase in traffic congestion in November – the first monthly increase in nearly two years.
