Gimenez, can you spot yourself in this bumper to bumper traffic jam?

Miami Herald:

Feeling traffic trauma? Miami commutes are longer than ever for more people than ever

BY ROB WILE


If you feel like your South Florida commute seems increasingly hellish these days, you're not alone.

Over the past decade, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties have seen a whopping increase of almost 29 percent in the share of commuters who travel at least 90 minutes to get to work. That is one of the largest increases in America among big cities.
By comparison, Atlanta saw just a 14 percent increase between 2005 and 2016, while New York jumped only 15 percent.
The data, compiled by ApartmentList.com, brings South Florida in line with the national share of Americans now making "supercommutes." As of 2016, 2.7 percent of South Florida commuters were traveling at least 90 minutes to get to work. That's the same as the nation as a whole. Other fast-growing regions now have even larger shares: 6.7 percent of New Yorkers are now supercommuters, while 4.6 percent of people living in and around Washington D.C. are making daily megahauls.
Here's how America's largest cities' supercommuter populations have grown since 2005. (Share of commuters who are now "supercommuters" are in parentheses.):
1) Boston: +50% (3.5%)
2) Miami: +28.8% (2.7%)
3) Los Angeles: +28.3% (3.8%)
Check out the rest of the list:

Found Gimenez now, where's Waldo?

Waldo's still stuck in the traffic jam...
