Washington D.C. is no. 1 August 29, 2015

Yeah, no. 1 in traffic congestion in the entire U.S. of A.

How is that for beating L.A. and San Fran to claim the dubious honor?

I have never like to drive in D.C. and bad traffic is on top of the list. Cops everywhere is the next. They will give you a ticket for any traffic violation on the book. The capital city depends on this revenue to get by.

The top ten reasons for the no. 1 title are;
1.   Gobs upon gobs of tourists in the summer, fall, winter, and spring. They take their time moving from one side of a street to the next;
2.   Very few left turn lanes even on major streets;
3.   One way traffic in the center of the city;
4.   Traffic circles;
5.   Diagonally crisscrossed streets overlapping a East-West/North-South grid;
6.   Double parked delivery trucks at any time of the day and at anywhere they like;
7.   Closed streets and detours for protestors, parades and VIPs;
8.   Slow moving taxis on the lookout for a fare;
9.   Too many traffic lights and many of them not synced;
10.   Out of state cars drop tourists off then move slowly looking for free parking spots on the street.
