That depends on the amount of capacity available. the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles have an equally undercapacity freeway system actually, although LA is a bit worse.

Yah, I know.  My comment was half-satirical (hence the  :) ).

However, the Bay Area is widening many of its congestion points (although slowly).  HOV lanes recently opened on US 101 in Marin County, I-880 was widened north of US 101 to 6 lanes (and there are plans for another 2 lanes), CA 87 gained HOV lanes, I-580 will be getting HOV lanes soon, etc.  LA and OC are now too built out to add substantive capacity to their freeway network without doing more out-of-the-box things, like the overhead HOV lanes on I-110 approaching downtown LA, or the toll lanes on CA 91 or I-15.  (I know, they recently built CA 210, but that's probably the last new freeway in the LA area.)

Actually, since row 1 is the header that is only the 99 busiest roads in California.

There's always one isn't there

I would note that the list above isn't actually the 100 (or even the 99) busiest roads in California--instead, it is the 100 busiest traffic counter locations, and something like one-third of them are in District 7.  Do we have any reason to think that traffic counters are evenly distributed across California, or even among the metropolitan districts (3, 4, 7, 8, 11, and 12)?
