They say that the average driver spends 38 hours a year in traffic, that's almost a full work week! Sounds horrific doesn't it? If you don't think that number is accurate then you must not live in one of these six traffic-stricken cities. These places are known for their terrible traffic conditions where everyday is a struggle to get from here to there. Check out the six worst cities for drivers then plan your life accordingly.

#1 Boston

Even more than other more obvious candidates, Boston is known for its horrendous traffic. One of biggest troubles is the long delays citizens face due to inclement weather and lack of parking spaces.

#2 New York

Most New Yorkers shy away from driving, and it is because there are so many distractions that driving is almost impossible. Luckily there are many other modes of transportation (subways, walking) to get citizens from here to there.

#3 Washington D.C.

The average driver spends 67 hours per year in traffic congestion, and the huge number of annual tourists harm matters more than they help.

#4 Los Angeles

Just a few of the reasons for the famous traffic issues in Los Angeles include lack of car pooling, amount of traffic at peak hours and driver distractions like texting while driving.

#5 Miami

Driving in Miami can be a real problem, and drivers here spend more time in their cars than most other places in the country plus insurance rates are through the roof which doesn't help driver morale.

#6 Chicago

While the usual issues plague this city's traffic, the horrific winter weather conditions really create traffic nightmares, even in the suburbs.
