From the complete report, the Hall of Shame - the 10 Worst:
Washington, DC
Newark, NJ
Alexandria, VA
Arlington, VA
Elizabeth, NJ
Glendale, CA
Providence, RI
Baltimore, MD
San Francisco, CA
Norfolk, VA

All of the cities here with which I am familiar have one thing in common - they were not designed for automobiles.

If Boston isn't on it, I don't believe it. You can get your butt kicked for Boston driving in the rest of the country.

3 of top 4 in DC metro area.
Why? Drivers from all over the nation, all with different driving customs, meeting in bad weather on choked-up roads typical of the northeast.
When it snows in DC, the Michigan-, New York- and Massachusetts- born drivers are doing 95 MPH while the Texas- and Florida- born drivers are doing 15 MPH on the same supercongested highways, as they weave across 8 lanes of traffic to move from the left-side entrance ramp to the right-side exit ramp.
For instance, on the beltway, you have to merge left six times just to stay on the damned highway.
