I'm surprised that no one mentioned Boston. Absolute worst city I've ever driven in. I've driven in all the cities cited so far, and still say Boston is the baddest of the bad.

Must be I'm the only one who doesn't like, St. Louis? I hate driving around or through it. Once I get around St. Louis, I'm always relieved.

I have to agree with the Boston comment. We go through Chicago fairly often to go to our daughter's home in Cedar Rapids and Chicago is tolerable but the arrogance and selfishness of the driver's in Boston is the worst of anyplace I have been.

X2 for St Louis. If I could just get in a lane and ride it out it would be ok. It seems like you have to get way over to the right at the last second. Not good in large MH.

I'd like to avoid Chicago, but alas my fate is sealed by my location.

On the plus side, I think I'm conditioned to bad traffic because I don't mind driving through big cities. I think of it as a challenge. I just try to avoid rush hour.

I have to add Denver, especially on Friday and Sunday afternoon to the West of Denver. I think everybody there gets out of town for the weekends.

I agree with Denver. We drove through Denver this past summer. After we finally reached the outskirts and headed on north, looked at each other, and vowed "never again". What a nightmare. And we live in metro Phoenix....so we are both quite accustomed to driving in heavy traffic all winter. (YEP....the snowbirds have arrived)

As a person that was raised and grew up there, I can totally agree that you become numbified by the traffic and learn to just deal with it! This is what I do! I don't know why this is so hard for people to understand?? If you don't like big cities, stay far, far away, and plan your trip around them but that's not always possible. Just deal with it as it's not a life long dealing as having to live there.

I think this question could pretty well be answered by saying every city. I think one of the worst I have driven through is Montreal Quebec. They have a bypass around it. Take it if in the area. Dallas was pretty bad as well. The lanes were very narrow, and bridges had light bases sticking out. Driving at night has its own hazards. Visibility is reduced. Many tire shops and possible assistance places are closed if you need help. The possibility of hitting road debris is greatly increased. We have found that driving at night is not worth it. If you must pass through a city, try to time it after, or before rush hours.
