It was only three years ago that Bostonians learned the city’s traffic problem was even worse than their city had been led to believe.
The city had ranked among the worst in the nation for traffic congestion.
Now, more than a year after that first news release, the numbers are worse than ever.

The department has also acknowledged that its officers are routinely pulled over and charged with misdemeanors and traffic violations.4.
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis has acknowledged the city faces serious traffic issues and a backlog of more than 3,000 traffic violations every day.
Davis has vowed to fix the problem.5.
The City of Boston has been accused of “covering up” its traffic problems and lying about them.
The latest allegation involves a video of a police officer telling a driver who was allegedly speeding in the city that they were going 90 mph in a 60 mph zone.
In the video, a police car can be seen pulling alongside the driver and giving the driver a ticket.
The police department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.6.
The city has become the poster child for traffic in Boston.
