North Texas Checks Into Hell



    Foursquare users in DFW are checking in to Hell.

    Not the fire and brimstone location full of torment (though if your A/C goes out, it might become that), but rather the "hell" of area traffic.

    King of the list is a location affectionitely called 635 Hell, located right at the Dallas North Tollway and 635. There, 109 area drivers -- at last count -- have checked-in to this "hell" highway. But they haven't hit their app just once -- there's 475 total check-ins.

    That's not the only location for traffic problems, either. Another location called "Stuck in Traffic on F''ing 75" proves 75 at Forest Lane causes other Foursquare users to curse their mode of transportation -- to the tune of 150 check-ins.
