While traveling through cities in the United States, wouldn't it be great if you could pinpoint where the worst traffic was? There is nothing I loathe more than driving in city traffic. Maybe it's the country girl in me or perhaps I'm just not used to the congestion, but busy highways and traffic filled streets get me nervous and stressed.
