123 RF / Alexey Zatevahin

Traffic in the UAE isn't so bad after all.

At least that's according to the TomTom Global Traffic Index, which ranked Dubai and Abu Dhabi 202nd and 396th respectively.

Mumbai took the top spot for the city with the worst congestion, followed by Bogota, Lima and New Delhi.

Motorists in the capital spend around 11 per cent more time stuck in traffic.

Meanwhile, congestion adds 23 per cent more to the travel time for those living in Dubai.
