First, let's employ the Rosslyn rule about parking your car: "All may park, all must pay." And what you pay varies from city to city. You think it's bad in D.C.? It is — but it's far worse in other U.S. cities.
So we leave it to the financial website NerdWallet.com to come up with the numbers. They did, pulling together data on parking costs and motor vehicle theft. Then they poured that stuff into their little pocket calculators to tell us the Top 10 worst U.S. cities for parking your car.
We threw that into the accompanying slideshow. You can see where D.C. stands and who's No. 1 — the most expensive city to park your car.
