America’s Worst City For Driving: Any Alabama Cities Listed??
It's time to discuss something I know you have a very strong opinion about. It involves a comfortable position and maybe a not-so-comfortable journey to a destination.
While driving could sound like a time that should be enjoyable, oftentimes it isn't.
Think about it... Sitting down on a soft seat, air conditioning, your favorite music or podcast playing through the speakers, and maybe even a meal.
What could possibly be bad about that right?
Could Tuscaloosa Make The List?
Well, maybe a trip down McFarland would answer that question if you ask many Tuscaloosa residents.
When it comes to construction or just horrible drivers, I think that road alone would earn T-Town a spot on this list. there have been many times when I've been out and almost in a car accident due to another driver cutting into my lane or unnecessarily speeding.
The question is, which city in Alabama is statistically the worst when it comes to driving?
Time Spent In The Car
When you really think about it, we spend more time in cars than we may initially think.
Drivers annually spend an average of more than 360 hours on the road according to Wallet Hub.
That's over two weeks!
Wallet Hub says that if you add the costs of wasted time and fuel due to traffic congestion, and our collective tab comes to about $564 per driver each year.
How It's Determined
Wallet Hub ranked America's best and worst cities to drive in by comparing the 100 largest cities across 30 key indicators of driver-friendliness including average gas prices to annual hours in traffic congestion per auto commuter to auto-repair shops per capita.
Alabama's Worst City To Drive In
According to Wallet Hub's findings, only one Alabama city made the list and it was actually not a bad thing.
The study showed America's best and worst cities for driving and Birmingham fell at number 30 out of 100. they were also the only Alabama city listed in this study.
We know there are some absolutely crazy people on the road in many Alabama cities, but do you think Birmingham is one of the best cities to drive in within Alabama?
