Over 100 experts and cross country drivers were asked where the worst places to drive in America are. By this survey, the following 10 places were identified: New York, Boston, the District of Columbia, Dallas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, and Hartford. Reasons for the hazards of driving in these cities are given along with the particular freeways or expressways where the dangers exist. Inserts with this article are: What drivers say about other places; the safest cities to drive in; and Popular Mechanics editors pick their "favorites" (worst places to drive).
