Traffic? Not in Jersey – at least that's what this study found

Here's a reason to celebrate in the Garden State. We did not make a list — a list no one wants to be on anyway.

According to TomTom, none of New Jersey's cities are on list of the world’s 60 worst cities for traffic. So stop using that as a reason for being late to work.

The rankings are based on ratings in five categories: Congestion, morning peak, evening peak, highways and non-highways.

And if you think N.J. was spared because it doesn’t necessarily have a major metropolis area, think again. Plenty of smaller cities, such as Portland, Raleigh, Tucson, Virginia Beach, Birmingham and Richmond made the list.

Want to know who has got it the worst? Here is the Top Ten worldwide:

10. San Jose, Calif.
9. Toronto
8. Seattle
7. Honolulu
6. San Francisco
5. Vancouver
4. Los Angeles
3. Sao Paulo
2. Mexico City
1. Rio de Janeiro

New York City? It came in 11th.
