My travel has mostly been concentrated in the east and southeast U.S., but from what I've seen I'd say:

-Atlanta's roads are in the best condition

-New Orleans' roads are in the the worst condition

I would say that roads are in pretty bad condition in the NYC metro area.

Best: Phoenix (rapidly deteriorating though), Atlanta, Miami

Worst: Bad is bad. Many cities back east and in the Midwest have horrid roads. California seems to have stopped maintaining its freeways in the 1970s. It is literally a night and day experience between AZ and CA. Denver also has pretty bad roads as well.

Not sure where I'd say the absolute best roads are, but my city definitely has the worst. Bad roads in New Orleans is kind of a signature staple here much like the food, music, and liquor.

Well, at least you're honest about it.

Growing up in Georgia, I was spoiled and didn't know what bad roads were until I began traveling extensively. It's mind-boggling how truly awful some states are. I don't know why people put up with it!
