Hawaii is 47th in the nation, when it comes to highway conditions, according to a study released today by Los Angeles-based think tank Reason Foundation.
Hawaii is ranked worst in the nation when it comes to urban interstate conditions, with about 25 percent of our freeways with poor mileage conditions.
The isles also have the smallest state-owned road system, logging in 1,005 total miles across the four counties.
Hawaii is among the safest when it comes to fatalities though. It is currently 12th in the nation, with about 1.04 fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles driven.
North Dakota currently has the best state-owned road system, while California, Alaska and Rhode Island round out the bottom three states, after Hawaii.
