The Worst States To Drive In: See Where Alabama Ranks

Have you ever yelled at someone in Alabama traffic? There may be a reasonable explanation for your frustration.

Let's face it, a lot of stress comes from our daily commute. Getting angry at other drivers for crazy things they do in traffic. Being cut off while in the turning lane, someone running light and almost hitting your car, or the classic changing lanes without a turn signal.

Even though I didn't grow up in Alabama, I quickly learned how many bad drivers are in this state. There have been too many close calls due to another driver's negligence. It would be dope if someone gathered some kind of data to show exactly how bad the drivers are in Alabama in comparison to other states in the U.S. Luckily, Wallet Hub did just that!

To find the best and worst states to drive in, Wallet Hub compared all 50 states across 31 key indicators of a positive commute. The data set ranges from average gas prices to rush-hour traffic congestion to road quality.

When it's all said and done, after looking at the data and rankings, Alabama came in as the 23rd best state to drive in. Wow!

Although I'm a bit surprised at how great Alabama was ranked, I agreed that states Florida and Louisiana were ranked below the Yellowhammer state. The great mystery is how Georgia is ranked above Alabama. That can't be right!
