Southern Hospitality: Texas Parks Four Cities in Top Ten Best To Drive
We all have those moments in Texas while driving, don't we? Someone cuts you off, the person in front of you doesn't use their blinker, finger gestures are exchanged...to say the least, sometimes driving isn't fun. But while these moments are often when driving, it turns oout driving in the Lone Star State isn't as bad as some may think it is.
Data is being collected every day about certain aspects of life in the age we live in. WalletHub recently put together a list of the best cities in the United States to drive around in. With how big the state of Texas is, the Lone Star State should've had at least one on the list, right?
WalletHub's Data And Findings
WalletHub used four main points to ascertain what made a city safe to drive in:
- Cost of Ownership & Maintenance
- Traffic & Infrastructure
- Access to Vehicles & Maintenance
So using these categories, and their various subcategories, WalletHub determined the best 100 cities to hit the road in. In what may surprise some, Texas landed 40% of the cities in the top ten.
Texas Driving Ranked By WalletHub
The highest city in Texas ranked on the list was Plano, coming in second with a score of 65.99. Right behind in third holding a score of 64.78 was Corpus Christi. At eighth was Arlington at a score of 62.67, and Garland right behind at ninth scoring 62.66.
However, various other cities in the state were on the top 100. Nine other cities from Texas were listed, Lubbock, San Antonio, and Fort Worth to name a few.
So Texas, looks like we've been driving well, but looks like we can get a few more cities in the top 100. So remember to drive safe and use those blinkers!
