INRIX is a formerly Microsoft-affiliated company that keeps track of traffic. And, far as it's concerned, the Dallas-Fort Worth is a congested mess -- fifth-worst in the country, matter of fact, behind only Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Its scorecard for the DFW is highly detailed too, listing the 25 worst bottlenecks -- the top four of which are in Tarrant County, actually, though Dallas counts 13 of them, including Woodall Rogers Freeway, period. And, a tip: Best time to travel in the DFW is between 9 and 10 a.m. on Fridays. Which just offers me one more excuse not to leave the house till then. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
