City-Data.com forummers, which U.S. cities (small, medium, and large) would you consider to be the worst to own a vehicle or to drive and/or park an automobile?

SD has a great freeway system, it's very easy to drive and people drive fast on it too. Lots of parking most places; most Southern CA cities have fairly strict and generous parking requirements. Nearly all the banks have drive through ATM's too unlike in Northern CA where I grew up.

I think dense, older eastern cities that weren't originally built around the automobile early on are the worst to drive in. I hear Boston is pretty bad.

I know I would hate to drive in SoCal traffic everyday to the point where I would move just cause of that.

Of the places that I have driven, SF. The traffic is bad, the streets narrow (and often nonsensical), and the parking is expensive. But The City is beautiful, and thus worth it.
