The US based National Motorists Association Open link in a new window (NMA) have published a list of 50 states in the USA, ranked according to their friendliness towards cars and motorcycles.

According to NMA's president, Jim Baxter, "It is not exactly a well kept secret that many traffic laws, enforcement practices and traffic courts are more about generating revenue and political posturing than they are about traffic safety. During holidays, like the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, we're bombarded with messages about intensified enforcement, 'click it or ticket,' and horrendous fines when in fact most vacation-related traffic accidents are caused my inattention, distraction and fatigue. However, these are accident causes that don't generate much in the way of government revenue, so instead our highways are overrun with unmarked police cars and ticket cameras".

They ranked the states based on laws, speed traps, kangaroo courts Open link in a new window, etc. Here are some of the criteria used:
