The countries with the highest road quality

Road infrastructure is an important factor for the productivity, safety and satisfaction in a country. Roads are used daily for a variety of reasons, and in order to build and maintain roads, costs are often high for the government. A poor road quality could also lead to potential accidents and carelessness. In 2011, road injuries were among the ten leading causes of death worldwide, taking about 1.26 million lives that year.

Not only does the government have to appropriately divide the territory, it is also important that these roads have a high efficiency to allow commuters to reach their preferred destinations with as few struggles as possible. This is particularly important in larger countries, where cities are further spread out from each other. In terms of mileage, the United States has the longest and largest road network in the world, with approximately 6.6 million kilometers of paved or unpaved roads, while road density is highest in Western Europe and Asia. Monaco is ranked as the country with the highest road network density, followed by Macau (one of the two Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China).
