Seattle Ranked #6 on List of Top 10 Worst Cities for Car Drivers

Based on data like gas prices, overcrowdedness, time spent in traffic and adverse weather, NerdWallet.com compiled a list of the top 10 worst cities for car drivers.

To the surprise of no one, Seattle made the list at #6, nestled in between Washington D.C. and Boston:

1) New York City

2) Detroit

3) San Francisco

4) Chicago

5) Washington D.C.

6) Seattle

7) Boston

8) Miami

9) Honolulu

10) Oakland

The ranking comes after a spat of some of the gnarliest Seattle traffic the city has seen in a long time.

First, an expansion joint came undone on I-5 in late May, bringing the city to a standstill.

Then last week, a crash on 99 ushered in 5 hours of gridlock that was so bad, a man started handing out free Dick's hamburgers as an act of mercy to passing motorists.

And then of course, two days ago a man on I-5 parked his car (which later caught fire) in the middle two lanes of the highway before being fatally shot by police.
