Inrix estimates Omaha's 877,000 residents spend less than an extra 1% driving time traveling to their destinations during rush hour vs. going during non-rush periods.


I find this hard to believe...

Agree Completely that that stat is off.

For a 20 Min drive that 1% would only add 12 seconds to the drive.
For the record  NEBUGEATER does not equal BUGEATER    !!!!!!!

I remember a story a few years ago that had stats showing congestion of the largest cities in the US and Omaha was one of them. I can't find the article now, but sometimes with these articles, they can get the stats to say whatever they want them to say.

Yeah, and how many statisticians does it take to change a light bulb? :)
