    List ranks best, deadliest roads

    Kansas, Wisconsin and Montana have the best roads in the country, according to a list compiled by Reader's Digest.

    The magazine looked at data from the Federal Highway Administration -- such as highway and bridge conditions, as well as congestion and the rate of fatalities -- to come up with the rankings.

    But while Montana made the "best" list because of its good infrastructure and few bottlenecks, it also had some dishonorable mentions.

    Montana tops both the list of states with the deadliest roads (followed by Louisiana and South Carolina) as well as the list of deadliest states when it comes to driving under the influence; South Carolina and Louisiana come in second and third in that category.

    "[Montana] tops the deadliest list in part because of drivers who drink, drive recklessly or shun seat belts," the magazine's editors said.

    Meanwhile, Alabama was ranked as the deadliest state for speeding, followed by Mississippi and South Carolina.

    I can believe Alabama after my last drive thru Mobile. The truckers were competing with the yuppies.

    Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.

    The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.
