Boston leads the list as the most difficult place to drive, followed closely by Washington D.C. and San Francisco. The study was performed by Bert Sperling, known for ranking cities on a wide array of criteria. The report lists the "USA's 75 biggest metropolitan areas according to how difficult they are to drive in... The study rates metro areas based on factors such as street layout; sprawl; obstacles such as rivers, lakes and bridges; and congestion data calculated by the Texas Transportation Institute. Each year, the institute rates cities with the most congestion. Last year, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Miami and Chicago topped the list."
