Would be any place that got a heavy amount of snow during or before rush hour. Would make a city as small as Boise with 2-3 hour delays.

Without snow or rain, Connecticut between NYC and New Haven. Awful gridlock that snakes for 20-30 miles.

I-95 southbound out of DC, from Springfield/Lorton VA toward Fredericksburg, VA. It's 40 miles between the two and routinely it will take an hour and a half to two hours (or more if there's an accident).

I 80, Chicago. Whether it's rush hour or not. I've heard that the most difficult border in the world to cross is North and South Korea, but that's not true. Its the border between Illinois and Indiana, which is always partly closed for construction and the rest blocked by an accident.

405 in L.A. between the 118 and 10. Continuing south past LAX and the Marina Freeway, it doesn't get much better.

Yeah, heard the horror stories? They really are no joke. 405 does markedly improve once you cross into Orange County.

When I used to commute from Granite Bay, CA to Downtown San Francisco---115 miles door to door. I was downright weary by the time I got home every night at around 8pm. UGH.

Just a couple weeks ago: I-25 in Denver, southbound from I-70 to Lincoln Ave. Never hit above 30mph the whole way, most of it was gridlocked.

Took 2 and a half hours to get to Castle Rock from Boulder, normally it's an hour.

That's the worst traffic I've ever been in here (only I-70 on Sunday in the mountains has been worse, but that's not city rush hour).
