Not a Shock: Forbes Ranks Boston #10 For US Cities with the Worst Traffic Congestion

Well this isn't a shocker to anyone who has to either live or work in the Metro-Boston area.

Forbes recently ranked Boston #10 on a list of the US cities with the worst traffic congestion. Here is what Forbes had to say:
10. Boston, Mass.

Annual delays per traveler: 46 hours

Commutes longer than 45 minutes: 20%

Boston's western suburbs, to which many of the city's middle- and upper-class families moved in the last 50 years, lack well-designed highways. As a result, drivers spend a lot of time on city streets, smaller byways and capillary roads on their way to Interstate 95. For residents of the city, the T provides train access across Boston.

Totally not shocking!!
