German company kfzteile24 set up a list about the interoperability of 100 cities by car, as HVG.hu reported. The results were interesting on both ends.
The new chart of kfzteile24 about the car-friendly factors in each city revealed some interesting facts. The creators of the chart examined how easily a driver can get through the average traffic of each city. The list included 100 cities and mostly focused on the driver’s experience as a tourist. Budapest was also among the studied places.
The main criteria were the average speed while getting from the inner city to the airport, and the percentage of encountering a bottleneck during the trip.
They have also recorded the data of public transport, the cost of parking and fuel, level of air pollution, number of accidents — and how many of them are lethal — and the quality of the roads. Kfzteile24 excluded the periods with a road works in progress on the given road section.
The 10 most car-friendly cities are the following due to the total results (the first number marks the percentage of bottlenecks, the second marks the average speed):
- Dusseldorf, Germany 20%, 33.9 km/h
- Dubai, United Arab Emirates: 26%, 50.7 km/h
- Zurich, Switzerland: 31%, 40.8 km/h
- Tokyo, Japan 26%, 48.8 km/h
- Basel, Switzerland: 27%, 28 km/h
- Singapore, Singapore: 38%, 51.8 km/h
- Dortmund, Germany: 23%, 31.8 km/h
- Vienna, Austria: 31%, 44.8 km/h
- Munich, Germany 30%, 43.8 km/h
- Calgary, Canada: 20%, 42.9 km/h
And how about the 10 least car-friendly cities? They are the following:
- Kolkata, India: 69%, 17.9 km/h
- Karachi, Pakistan: 59%, 17.9 km/h
- Lagos, Nigeria: 60%, 17.1 km/h
- Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia: 65%, 34.9 km/h
- Mumbai, India: 67%, 12.9 km/h
- Bengaluru, India: 64%, 29.9 km/h
- Ho Si Minh City, Vietnam: 64%, 23.8 km/h
- Bogota, Colombia: 48%, 20 km/h
- Mexico City, Mexico: 66%, 28 km/h
- Istanbul, Turkey: 49%, 18.8 km/h
From these two lists we might draw the conclusion that Germany is probably the most car-friendly country, while the least inoperable one is India.
Budapest didn’t get on any of the toplists:
Hungary’s capital ranks 54th on the chart.
More exactly, an average 22% of the day is spent waiting and dragging in a bottleneck, and the average speed between the inner city and the airport is 26.88 km/h.
