Having driven in many cities in the US I would have to say that Detroit Michigan has some of the worst roads in the country.

I drive a lot in the state of Oklahoma. In Tulsa, the roads are really bad and uneven. Potholes there range anywhere from 1' to 6' in diameter and up to 2' deep in some places. Those potholes are just the ones located on paved roads. Some dirt or gravel roads have had up to half of the road missing after a big storm."During the fiscal year 2000-01, 83,613 potholes were repaired." That was from a report given by the city, on the conditions of roads in Tulsa. Those numbers, however, are just an estimate of the potholes that have been reported as repaired according to city maintenance records. There are still more potholes that haven't been reported, fixed, or are on roads that the city isn't responsible for maintaining.
