Honolulu traffic got 18 percent worse last year but still ranks second behind Los Angeles on the annual INRIX Traffic Scorecard.

Los Angeles drivers wasted an average of 64 hours in traffic in 2013, an 8.5 percent increase from the previous year, while Honolulu residents wasted 60 hours in traffic during the year, an 18 percent increase over 2012.

Honolulu had topped Los Angeles on the 2012 list as having the worst traffic in the U.S. in 2011.

For 2013, the INRIX list of worst roads for congestion in the U.S. lists five locations along the freeway: From Aolele Street to Moanalua Road, Koko Head bound from the Middle Street Interchange to Vineyard Blvd. and Ward Avenue overpass. Also, Ewa-bound from Kaua Street to Aiea, Koko Head-bound  from Paiwa Street to Moanalua Road, and a 5.18 mile stretch heading Ewa-bound from Koko Head Avenue.

The rest of the 2013 top five cities for worst traffic were San Francisco, Calif., Austin, Texas, and New York City.

The biggest percentage increase of hours wasted in traffic was in Boston, where traffic got 22 percent worse, up to 38 hours.
