If You're Looking for Car-Friendly Cities, Avoid These Metropolises

If you’re a car owner and you live in one of the cities in this slide show, you’re probably used to paying high insurance premiums, sitting in bumper-to-bumper rush hour traffic, wasting time trying to find a parking space, and paying more for gas than most of the country.

It may come as no surprise that several of the cities on this list are among the country’s largest and most visited. In fact, three of them rank highly in U.S. News’ top 100 Best Places to Live. While these cities have a lot to offer, they’re not prime destinations for car lovers. Using public transportation or hitting the bike lanes is the more affordable, and often less stressful, way of commuting in these metropolises.

So if you’re relocating to one of the cities in this slide show, selling your car before the big move will be good for your bank account and probably save you some headaches in the future.
