    There've been studies done on this. Do we really need a poll? Just askin'

    You are obsessed with silly polls. I'm waiting for IJAG to lay the smackdown again.

    And I know we're limiting this to the states, apparently, but Toronto is perhaps every bit as bad as D.C./NYC.

    Baltimore-DC, with Richmond thrown in as part of the same migraine.

    St. Louis? Seriously? You're a fucking idiot.

    I'll take IJAG's place, for now.

    As for why D.C./Baltimore traffic is bad:
    Drivers will cut over four lanes of traffic without signaling -- and without a thought. First trip down to D.C. involved a trip on the Baltimore and D.C. Beltways, and I thought I was going to have a heart attack driving 'em. I-95 ain't a picnic, either.

    I've been through there before; it was a while ago, but I'm sure nothing's changed. I thought the city traffic was just like any other big city. But the I-95 and every other 95 was worse than I thought it'd be. I'd rather drive in the city during rush hour than on 495 and 695.

    Doc beat me to it. If anyone votes for the Lou, they need to get around more.

    STL, he just pulled 10 metro areas out of his ass, and posted them in a poll. It's his M.O. What do you expect?

    To the dude's credit, he did pick 15.

    Touche, Mike. Should've counted before I made the comment.
