American roads have been voted the best place on the globe for Brits to go motoring. The World Driving Report 2006 has just been published in London , and revealed 58 percent of people ranked the USA as their top destination for ease of car use. Australia was second with 53 percent, followed by Ireland by on 49 percent. The data has been compiled by vehicle rental firm and also highlighted America as one of the vacation destinations felt to have the safest roads. It took third spot behind Australia and Switzerland in that category. Almost 2,000 drivers were polled for their opinions in the study. British motorists believe South Africa is the scariest place to get behind the wheel, while Holland got voted worst for congestion.-Richard Yarrow

"Ease of car use?" Well, I can understand that because we've got much more space than most countries. I don't think I'd go so far as to call them the "best" roads -- certainly not when it comes to things like road surface and potholes...

Best roads depends on where you're at in the country. I thought Illinois was bad until I got to Massachusetts. *grin* But I hear that the roads are much worse in Europe for lots of reasons.
