    The battery won’t necessarily run out faster but it will run out without you getting to your desination maybe. Batteries are only meant to last a certain amount of time so if that time is spent in traffic for say, 2 hours, then your battery might die before getting home whereas if you weren’t in traffic you would have made it home with battery life to spare. There are a few things that will speed up the battery loss though such as running the lights, heating, and cooling. The make of car will also vary how fast your battery drains. If stuck in traffic try to utilize the battery in the least and you can squeeze a bit more out of it than you would normally.
