    CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Ohio was ranked the third best state for drivers by Bankrate. Indiana was sixth.

    The Bankrate Best States for Drivers Study looked at seven measures related to cost, safety and driving quality. They included commute times, traffic deaths, road conditions and gas prices.

    Safety is an obvious issue but cost can impact drivers quite a bit. Rocky Moretti, director of policy and research for TRIP, says driving on rough roads can cause a driver to pay an average of $599 in repairs.
