Top Ten U.S. States With the Worst Traffic ConditionsWhether it's because of bad drivers in the state or just really congested jams on the roadways.
The Top Ten
I've visited this state three times, and if someone was on the road, there was a ninety-five percent chance that they were a maniac. My experience of Californian traffic is not as dense as the traffic in the British capital, believe me, but even there it's easier to get from place to place more safely. - PositronWildhawk
Most populous state, gets the worst traffic because of the density. I know it's a big state but come on. - NuMetalManiak
Nj is number 1
The roads are constantly backed up in northern Virginia, it's honestly a normal, everyday situation. Unless you have an E-ZPass, don't even bother driving on I-95, I-395, or I-495.
Tried to take the highway, was congested. Turned and tried to take the tunnel instead, closed. Tried to take the bridge, Stuck behind working vehicles going slower than a light jogger on the side path... Don't even get me started with NOVA...
I've lived here my entire life and it sucks. Traffic at the beach is atrocious especially during tourist season. Worst of all would have to be up in the DC beltway area, near Tyson's Corner or wherever. I really hate the traffic in Northern Virginia! - NuMetalManiak
We'll do this another night tonight. Because... SWEET CAROLINE BA BA BA
If you go to NYC directly, you're better off walking instead of taking a cab. It's always slow there. - NuMetalManiak
Actually your better taking a cab - 2storm
NEVER. DRIVE. TO NYC. ALWAYS TAKE A TRAIN OR TAXI! - Idiot
I live in Georgia and I like the roads. Georgia has some of the best roads, but you will be enjoying those roads while being stuck in traffic.
One word Atlanta
North Jersey traffic is terrible. North Jersey has proximity to NYC, so that's why many people overpopulated the northern part of Jersey. NYC traffic is the worst and most dangerous traffic I have experienced. Every road is congested in Jersey and crowded especially in the summer.
Marylanders live for slowing down the left lane and cutting people off
Well, at least is not as bad as New York or Massachusetts.
Like Northern Virginia, Maryland's traffic really sucks around the DC area. - NuMetalManiak
Guess what? I'm back in Orlando for my summer vacation, and guess what, it's STILL the same congested craziness! Worst is how every single traffic light seems to always catch us. You can barely head around Orlando/Kissimmee area because of this. Also we passed through both downtown Jacksonville and downtown Orlando and the way the metropolitan areas are around here really gave me a headache. - NuMetalManiak
I-95 is a disaster most of the time in this state. This is true especially with all the traffic going to/from Disney/Universal in Orlando. Miami is pretty bad as well. - NuMetalManiak
I've been in Broward county since 1974. I am leaving soon. Too much traffic for me! Too crowded here. I like less crowded places and small towns so this is not for me, but apparently tons of people are willing to put up with it to enjoy the weather.
OH MY GOD PEOPLE HERE STOLE THEIR LICENSE.
Where do I start... Oh yeah they drive 25mph over the speed limit on highways, they flood up in too our state (Wisconsin) and think they can do whatever they want
To be fair, they have only one really congested city, everything else is a little more fluid in traffic. - NuMetalManiak
I-90, I-93, and I-95 in Massachusetts are terrible. And so is Massachusetts!
Traffic always stopped when trying to commute home from work.
Horrible Traffic, plan 1-2hrs for 20 miles during commute times
At least it's not New York, even though Massachusetts is 💩.
Several big cities here, usually with tons of drivers. - NuMetalManiak
Have you ever heard of the Merrit Parkway!?!?!
I-95 Fairfield County...the worst!
Grid lock is terrible during rush hours
Traffic in Pennsylvania beats out traffic and surrounding states by a mile. With its antiquated highway system small streets an over abundance of drivers makes for a recipe for disaster. They say the construction cone is the state flower of Pennsylvania as every road and highway in and around Philadelphia and surrounding counties are constantly under construction, With exception of fixing there millions of potholes. A normal 15 minute trip to the store could be an hour or longer. Best bet is to find a different route through New Jersey
It takes forever to get from one place to the other.
