Got Potholes? See How New Jersey Ranks Nationally with Pothole Problems in America
Nothing worse than driving along and hitting a terrible pothole, it shakes your vehicle and makes your front end feel like it's gonna fall off. I seem to find potholes! Especially after I get a front-end alignment and a tire rotation, as soon as I get out of the garage boom! I hit a pothole!
I think many people here in New Jersey feel we could use some love for our roads, but where do we stack up nationally with "potholes" here in America? In a new survey, it appears we have a reason for concern because we rank in the TOP 10 worst states in America for pothole damage. In a recent Patch article, they cited a recent survey. "According to AAA, drivers pay an average of $600 every time they have to take their cars into the shop for a pothole repair. And, QuoteWizard's study shows that New Jersey is the ninth-worst state in the country for potholes."
"QuoteWizard came to these determinations by analyzing search data for pothole repairs and pothole-related complaints in the state so far in 2023. They combined them into a search index average for both states and individual cities." So let's see how the Garden State ranks in the TOP 10 worst roadways in America:
|State||Rank||Search index average|
