I've always thought Californian highways were one of the best in America...

For the highways I've driven on, they were really nice. But I heard from an uncle that I-70 in Kansas was west to east was a nightmare. I don't know from experience, but I really like I-80 (even though Nebraska goes on forever) so I don't think I'd take any other route.

Alabama's are pretty bad, but being steadily improved; i've only been here about 2 1/2 years, and there's a huge difference.

Tennessee's are horrible, they're always under reconstruction.

North Carolina's are nice.

Florida's aren't too hot.

Georgia's are pretty good, but the areas around the exits are scary. CUE "DUELING BANJOS!!!"

Maryland was o.k.

the lower midwest has problems with a lot of freezing and thawing, versus more continious freezing conditions further north and less freezing conditions in the south. id nominate MO. but everyone is bitching about their respective states. so then again...if i were to guess, i'd say probably michigan.

The poster is linking to live shots, so if you're reading this at 12 PM Phoenix time, it'll show the traffic at that moment.

Worst?

1- Ohio. The worst I had seen.
2- Indiana perhaps.
3- Michigan, Illinois or Nebraska.

I would say, West Virginia.

A whole lot of roads are basically "jeep tracks".
They say here, "You'v gotta have some mud on the tyre".

Except for the interstate, easily, WV.

Nobody said Mass yet? Driving through Boston (even now) is a nightmare! The Big Dig, the crazy interchanges, and the heavy traffic made it one of the worst for me.

In general, Highways in the Northeast are not good though, CT roads are bad also.
