Florida has best roads and bridges in the U.S., says Washington Post report

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A new report ranks the Sunshine State the best in the country when it comes to road and bridge quality.

The report from the Washington Post says only 4 percent of the more than 121,000 miles of the state's road are in disrepair.

The national average is 14 percent.

The study says the good roads save drivers more than $300 a year in car maintenance.

Policy experts say tolls, user fees and taxes help to ensure adequate funding for Florida's highways and byways. 

Also, the warm winters don't lead to the cracks and massive potholes that hamper colder climates in the United States.
