Other local cities followed closely behind with San Bernardino coming in 8th, Long Beach coming in 20th and Santa Ana coming in 22nd.

WalletHub compared a sample of the 100 most populated U.S. cities across four key dimensions including, cost of ownership and maintenance; Traffic and infrastructure; Safety; Access to Vehicles and Maintenance.
L.A. also ranked on the list of cities with the highest likelihood to have an accident as well as the fewest auto-repair shops per capita.

A new study by the Southern California Association of Governments found since mid-May traffic in L.A. has nearly returned to pre-pandemic levels.
At one point, traffic was down 80% from its peak. According to the study, 70% percent of traffic has returned.
The study also showed people are still avoiding public transportation such as buses and trains.
