Wallethub released its study, "2020's Best & Worst States to Drive in" on Tuesday.
The top ten best states for driving are:
- North Carolina
The top ten worst states for driving are:
- Rhode Island
- West Virginia
- New Jersey
The report's findings were based on a comparison of the states' cost of ownership and maintenance, traffic and infrastructure, safety, and access to vehicles and maintenance.
Not only did Indiana come in as the eighth-best state for driving, but Hoosiers were also ranked with the fourth-lowest amount of auto maintenance costs.
However, potholes would fall under Wallethub's traffic and infrastructure study, where "rush hour traffic" had the most weight in metric.
