Dublin is one of the worst cities in the world to be a driver, only drivers in Bogota and Rome spent more time stuck in traffic last year.

A new report from motor data company Inrix shows commuters spent almost 250 hours stuck in cars in the city last year - that's the equivalent of more than 10 full days.

It also shows that Drivers in Dublin travel at the slowest city centre speeds in the world.

The average speed in the capital at peak times is just 9.6 kilometres an hour, according to a new study by motor data company Inrix.

The other European cities where drivers spend the most time in their cars were Rome (254 hours), Paris (237 hours), Rostov-on-Don (237 hours) and London (227 hours).

Professor Brian Caulfield from Trinity College says there are many reasons why people are choosing to take their cars: 'If there were more options available people may have more viable alternatives to get out of their car and onto public transport. When it comes to more investment in lanes in the city centre, that's not there. One of the things I always say is that we have a space problem when it comes to public transport.'
