Boston zoomed to the top thanks to poor winter weather (which makes for dangerous roads), less than ample parking, with just 1.36 garages per every 1,000 cars, and the greatest likelihood of an accident over any other city. Quite a troika. Washington, DC, came in second place with 67 hours of traffic annually and the average car owner’s insurance priced at $1,390.88. LA took third, with drivers sitting in 61 hours of traffic a year, and paying $4.01 per gallon for gas -- as NerdWallet points out, 57 cents above average. Angelenos complain about that, too.
Cities across the country, including Miami, Seattle and New York City, ranked among the worst places to be behind the wheel. But somehow, neither Houston nor Atlanta made the top 10. See, Houstonians and Atlantans? It gets better.
