How many times did you jump in your seat on your way to work this morning because there was a pothole you just couldn’t avoid? How many times did you curse under your breath because of the bad pavement? If you think that happens more than often, you’re probably living in one of 15 states with the worst roads and infrastructure in US.

Roads and infrastructure are what makes the state. Think about it. The living standard of the whole state is determined by it. You can really see the what state a state (or any country) is in just by looking at its roads. One drive along the highway can tell you more than any report. If it’s a bumpy ride, you know very well you can’t expect for anything else to be right either. Infrastructure and roads are of great importance to everyone. What is a state infrastructure anyway? Surely the term is always in the news and politicians’ speeches, but can you define it? Vaguely. The infrastructure comprises schools, hospitals, roads, bridges, tunnels, post offices, airports, telephone lines and all those other facilities that make our lives easier. Therefore, infrastructure makes the very core of our lives.

It verges on the impossible to include all the infrastructure parameters in one research, so Insider Monkey chose four. There are roads, of course, and bridges, schools, and hospitals. Basically, transport, education and health facilities. Isn’t that what our lives are all about? You’ll find out which bridges are the most dangerous and what states have 70% (!) of their roads in a bad shape. On the bright side, there aren’t any states which have the worst roads, bridges, education and healthcare at the same time.

Take a look at 15 states with the worst roads and infrastructure in US and see if your state is really that bad.
