Motorists spend six per cent of their time in jams, equating to 16 peak hours a year stuck in traffic.
A reader survey carried out by the Post in 2017 revealed a staggering four out of five people in Preston are caught in congestion at least once a week - 53 per cent say they hit trouble every day.
In total, including the two unitary authorities of Blackpool and Blackburn with Darwen, Lancashire has 106 miles of motorways, 494 miles of A-roads and 4,364 miles of minor roads.
In 2016 there were 821,400 motor vehicles licensed in the county - up by 14,800 from 2015. That adds up to 165 vehicles for every mile of carriageway.
But all is not doom and gloom. Lancashire is in the middle of a £357m highways spending spree in a bid to bring relief to the hard-pressed traveller.
