The most (and least) driver-friendly states in the U.S., 2020

Unsurprisingly, Hawaii has been ranked the third-worst state in the U.S. for driving, according to a new study from the folks over at WalletHub. This probably won’t come as much of a surprise to motorists who take to the roads in the Aloha state.

If this news isn’t bad enough, get this: the most driver-friendly state in the U.S. for driving, according to the report, is Iowa. The state of Iowa led the way as the most driver-friendly state in the U.S. for 2020, followed by Tennessee, North Carolina, and Texas, respectively.

To determine the most (and least) driver-friendly states in the U.S., the personal-finance website compared the 50 states across 31 key metrics. The data set ranges from the cost of vehicle ownership and maintenance, traffic and infrastructure and safety.

On the other end of the spectrum behind California, Washington settled for 48th position in the rankings, followed by the state of Rhode Island in 49th place and Hawaii in dead last.
