KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians are spending more time in traffic gridlock than a year ago, according to an online survey conducted by global carmaker, Ford.

The company said of the 1,050 Malaysian respondents, 55 per cent of them said they spent more time in traffic.

"More than one in five said their commute was the worst part of the day," said Ford in a statement on Tuesday.

The company said Malaysian daily commuters were the second most likely to report an increase in the cost of their commute compared to a year earlier, which at 75 per cent was behind only Hong Kong, with rising fuel prices the most commonly cited reason.

It said the survey in the Asia-Pacific region was conducted by GlobalWebIndex on behalf of Ford Motor Company.

A total of 12,619 consumers were surveyed across 12 markets, namely Australia, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

The fieldwork was concluded in January. - Bernama
