STUDY: NY, NJ Worst to Drive in

Between the traffic and the expenses associated with having a car, driving is a necessary hassle for many people.

A recent study confirmed what many in New Jersey and New York hold to be true – driving is a major headache.

WalletHub took a look at the 100 largest cities in the country across 30 key indicators of driver-friendliness to determine the best and worst cities to drive in. The key indicators ranged from average gas prices to annual hours in traffic congestion per auto commuter to auto-repair shops per capita. These key indicators were then divided into four separate rankings – cost of ownership and maintenance, traffic and infrastructure, safety as well as access to vehicles and maintenance. The four individual ranks comprised the overall rank of a particular city.

It turns out that a few local cities have the distinction of being among the worst based on the data compiled.
