Hi everyone. In your opinion, of the 10 largest US metro areas, which has the least hectic traffic. I know everyone has pretty bad traffic because of the amount of people but which is most manageable for day to day commuting in general.

Traffic in DFW is awful. It's not L.A. bad but it still sucks.

The Fort Worth side of DFW would be the easiest on the list.
