Traffic in Miami is bad not just compared to other U.S. cities, but compared to every city on earth. That’s according to a new study by global analysis firm INRIX, as reported by Miami New Times.

NRIX tallied up data on 1,360 of the world’s most congested cities, and Miami came in 10th on the Global Traffic Scorecard rank. The firm estimated residents spent an average of 64 peak hours per year in congestion.

American cities were well-represented in the most-congested ranking: LA came in at #1, NYC at #3, SF at #5, and Atlanta at #8.
