New Mexico has some fairly good interstate highways…… however you take your life in your own hands traveling between Albeq & Santa Fe on I-25. Those drivers are CRAZY and will kill you if you’re in their way while they drive at speeds of 90+…….

Hmm...., I commuted daily between the two cities for a month. That wasn't my experience. I like that the speed limit is 75 on I-25 though. I've seen much crazier drivers elesewhere though, like in the Northeast and especially Florida.

Nebraska, almost drove into about 5 tires laying in the middle of the road, among other things.

I have to clarify my post,,,,, I should have said "some" drivers. Obviously it only takes one or two nuts on the highway at high speeds and cutting in and out of the lanes to cause issues for others. I should not have indicated all drivers........

I-40 through New Mexico is a very pleasant drive and I've never seen an issue there. Perhaps because there are more state police monitoring the area keeping it that way. It's sure different compared to I-25 however.

A true nightmare. I can't stand driving in this area. One of the most congested semi trailer packed highways in the US.

I-85 just south of Richmond, uneven pavement. Granted, I was in a U-Haul truck but geez. It felt like we were driving on the moon.

My uncle hated having no rest stops in Texas. But the state has lately been razing down their 1960's outhouses and building massive ranch style outhouses where the old ones stood along with building new ones (like along U.S. 287 from Fort Worth to Amarillo).

Florida Interstates suck! I-4 and I-95 are especially dangerous.

I-75 in Tennessee north of Knoxville, near Jellico. There seems to always be wrecks. I have been tied up in traffic jams of 2-4+ hours on more than one occasion. Maybe due to only having two lanes each direction?

If 3 digit interstates count, I-710 in the LA Area has horrible pavement quality, due to all the truck traffic, and I say that as a truck driver who has to use it regularly
