California ranked last in Bankrate's 2016 report, as well. North Dakota earned the number one position as best state for drivers due to low car repair costs, low auto insurance premiums and high safety scores.

California ranked poorly due to a high percentage of roads in poor condition, long commute times and high rates of theft and fatal crashes. Hawaii, Connecticut, New Jersey and Washington comprise the other top five spots on the list of worst ranking places for drivers.
