Harsh winters and the resulting freeze-thaw cycle have placed Michigan at the very top of an undesirable list.

A new study, conducted by Quote Wizard using Google analytics and statistics, found that Michigan ranks worst in the nation for potholes.

In 2022, a team of analysts looked at Google search statistics over the last year and found that Michigan had more searches for pothole-related complaints than any other state.

Indiana, Rhode Island, Washington, and Vermont weren’t far behind.

Statistics according to the Quote Wizard study:

  • Michigan ranks first for potholes
  • Worst cities for potholes: Traverse City ranked 17th, Lansing ranked 21st and Grand Rapids ranked 30th
  • Drivers between 35 and 44 hit the most potholes
  • Nationally, the average pothole repair bill is $306 dollars
  • U.S. drivers spend nearly $3 billion a year fixing damage caused by potholes, according to AAA.

The full report covered all 50 states, most major cities, and answers frequently asked online for repairs and car coverage.
