Delaware Ranks As One Of The Worst States To Drive In

Sure, traffic can get bad in every state.  And when it happens, there’s nothing much worse.  You just want to get where you’re going.  And it never fails that when traffic does arise, it’s when you’re headed somewhere you are looking forward to getting to.  Like home from work, or down to the beach.

The I-95 Restore the Corridor project has certainly added to the traffic here in the first state.  The road closures and exit closures seem like they’re never going to end.  And though gas prices are going down, we’ve been sitting in traffic, wasting gas, during the highest price of gas in our country.

The folks over at WalletHub put together a list of the best and worst states for driving across the country.  They based the rankings  across four key dimensions: 1) Cost of Ownership & Maintenance, 2) Traffic & Infrastructure, 3) Safety and 4) Access to Vehicles & Maintenance.

Where did Delaware rank?  NUMBER 3!  The number 1 spot went to Hawaii and number 2 to Washington.

Top Ten Most Stolen Cars In Delaware

Top Ten Most Stolen Cars In Delaware in 2021

Driving in Delaware is no easy task.  Living here in the First State, especially if you’re near the I-95 Restore The Corridor project, you know traffic can be the worst!  Even if your commute doesn’t take you into Philly or Jersey, it can still take time to get around.

Will this construction ever stop?  It will.  At least on I-95. But, we know a new project will soon pop up.  Like, maybe a local bridge?

So, what could make our daily commutes even worse?  Waking up to find our vehicle has been stolen would do the trick.

The crew over at Car Scoops put together a list of not only the top ten most stolen cars in Delaware, but also in every state across the nation.

According to the study from Car Scoops, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) reports that a pickup truck was the most commonly stolen vehicle type in 36 of America’s 50 states. In fact, in 27 states, pickups were the two most commonly stolen vehicles.

Hopefully,  you won’t see your vehicle on the list below.  But, if you do, be careful out there and ALWAYS lock your doors.
