Six Spanish cities are among those with the fewest traffic jams in Europe, according to a recent survey.
The investigation analysed average speeds over recent years on the database of the Dutch sat-nav firm, TomTom, in 59 cities of over half a million inhabitants.
Brussels, Warsaw and Breslaw (Poland) are the top-three most-gridlocked European cities, followed by London, Edinburgh, Dublin, Belfast, Marseille, Paris and Luxembourg.
Zaragoza is bottom of the list, and Valencia is the penultimate.
Also a long way down the list at number 55 out of 59 is Málaga, with Sevilla and Madrid in 49th and 42nd place, respectively.
Barcelona is much higher up at number 17.
TomTom, as well as other GPS manufacturers, are designing a series of ‘Eco-Routes’ and ‘IQ Routes’, which they say will save the driver some 54 euros a year based on an average of 20,000 kilometres annually, and result in a discount of 123 kilos of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere, per motorist.
