I am surprised to see Ohio in there for toughest enforcement. PA always seemed worse to speed through to me.
I'm also surprised that WV roads we not rated as one of the worst. Most roads are horrible. Big ole pot holes.
Good post.

Now they need a rating for the most orange barrels. They are popping out all over here in Ohio. The orange barrel season overlaps spring, summer and fall here in Ohio.
How about where you are?

No way. Michigan is most worse have bad road. I have bend 1 rim and broke rear strut shock on 79 f150 on pot hole that you couldn't see at night time.


Several of my friends end tow cars to home why it smash oil pan from huge pot holes.

That why I bought truck for that but still awful.
