Worse, but you've got to remember that SA has many more residents than does Madison.

I don't know if I'd call it worse. It's faster. There are more highways to get you to every corner of the city. Having lakes in the middle of the city makes it more of a challenge to get to every corner of Madison quickly. OTOH, San Antonio has many more cul de sacs and gated neighborhoods than Madison. If the main arterial roads are blocked, there are fewer surface street alternatives than there are in Madison.

You will need to get used to highway driving, along with service roads and turnarounds in a hurry if most of the driving you've done was in Madison.

I've driven in Madison and I've driven in San Antonio.......San Antonio is bigger, and I would much rather drive in San Antonio.....don't have to worry about snow, snow plows and other wintry things.

Distance is a major concern. Depending on where in the metro you live it could be over 30 miles to your destination. Many more square miles to cover in the area than Madison. Per square mile traffic not horrible, then again depending on where in the metro you are. If your in one of the areas where there are traffic lights on the outer loop like myself times can be rough.

I think it is safe to assume that the OP is talking about Madison, WI unless otherwise specified. The other "Madisons" are very small towns. Just as if someone mentions San Antonio, even in other parts of the country people will assume they are referring to San Antonio, TX rather than San Antonio, NM unless otherwise indicated.

There's a Madison in AB, Canada?
