i've got some relatives who live in maryland, and one summer we went down to visit them. on the way back we got stuck outside of DC in traffic for aout 6 hours. there was an accident and and there was a large section of the highway closed off, and the traffic helicopter landed right there in the road.

edit: maybe it was more like 4 hours...but i was about 13 at the time and that was the longest i've ever been stuck in traffic. and it's still the longest.

No Canadian cities listed but thats ok. Few weeks ago a large truck overturned on a local bridge (major traffic artery) around noon. It wasn't cleared until after 6 pm, traffic was mental. everything was gridlocked. Luckily I was not working that day but several neighbours were, their normal 30 minute commute took 2 to 3 hours. Traffic sucks.

I'll give you that. DC traffic is horrible. Very few true freeways.

My BUS prof. said one of the reasons Boeing moved to Chicago was b/c of traffic in Seattle.

I think Toronto should be there. Let's just include the entire 401 highway. It's plain ridiculous. They finally created another highway to alleviate the 401 conjestion, but charged a toll fee, which now rose, so no one takes it anyway.
