Best and worst driving states unveiled in new study (WKRC File)

CINCINNATI (WKRC) - It's easy to joke about how bad driving in the Tri-State can be. But a new list may contradict that opinion.

WalletHub, a personal finance website, put out its study of best and worst states in the nation in which to drive. The survey was based of factors such as traffic and infrastructure, safety, car theft rate, access to vehicles and maintenance, and cost of ownership and maintenance.

This year, Texas was placed in the top spot, followed by Kansas and Nebraska.

Ohio ranked No. 22. Indiana (15) and Kentucky (17) were in the upper half of the list, which means better places to drive. The Hoosier State was cited for having one of the lowest auto maintenance costs.

And the states with the worst driving? Hawaii, Washington and Maryland.
