Do you have any pictures (if nothing else it might just make me feel lucky when I'm stuck in traffic )

For it's size, Bentonville, Arkansas can get into a nice traffic bind.
It's got the worst rush halfhour traffic in the world.

Seattle traffic is terrible. The natural obstructions in this area mean that there are few roadway routes which are acceptable. Entire neighborhoods would have to be bulldozed to hold more cars and that won't happen.

It gets especially terrible when it snows. The pacific naturally shields the lowlands from snow usually. But when it does snow, I literally stay home. If it's more than 1 inch I stay home. Pandemonium and chaos on the roadways. I remember one snowstorm that came in last year that dumped a mere 4 inches. There were quite a few people who got stuck in their cars OVERNIGHT. LITERALLY! Some were lucky and made it home by 3 AM after leaving the office at 6 PM. State patrol and rescue had to move quite a few cars out of the way which had run out of gas.

Thankfully they made it legal to salt the roads again. I understand the motivation for not wanting to (there's salmon runs near here and salt in the streams kills them) but I'm willing to pay a higher price for less salmon for safe roads.

For its size, I hear that Branson, Missouri is pretty terrible because of tourism. I've seen pictures and videos and its seemingly accurate.

I-75 is a nightmare from Florence Kentucky for the next 20 miles through Cincinnati Ohio. The Ohio River bridge is severely outdated and the Ohio side of I-75 hasn'y been updated since the 1960s.
