We always here about those cities with horrible traffic. Los Angeles, New York City, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, D.C...etc. But what are the smaller metro areas with bad traffic is what i'm wondering. It can be any city under 4,000,000 residents within the Metro area. And even post pictures if you can please!

Fairfield County, CT (Greenwich, Stamford, Bridgeport). That stretch of I-95 must exist in hell!

Saint Louis is definitely not my cup of tea, but the freeways there move along pretty nicely and are pretty easy to navigate.

Pittsburgh, our Interstates are atrocious and not up to modern interstate standards. Here are some pictures of "normal" traffic on the parkway http://www.google.com/imgres?q=green...:429,r:15,s:0:

There are times when it is not unusual to have traffic stop and go for this entire trip: I-376 W to Pittsburgh, PA 15222 - Google Maps
Now I understand there are cities that are much worse (D.C. and Philly both come to mind) but for a city of its size, Pittsburgh traffic is a nightmare

I only been stuck in traffic in STL once. Out of all of the times I been there. Even when the radio stations have traffic updates most of the time they don't have any traffic slowdowns reported. Their lucky.

I-279 is built to modern Interstate standards; I-376 is not. Traffic is always much worse on I-376 than it is on I-279. That's no coincidence. Unfortunately, expanding capacity on I-376 would be expensive, and the anti-sprawl crowd doesn't seem to mind that Pittsburgh's primary Interstate is saddled with inferior design features.
