In a new survey, Bleacher Reports found that the state ranked near the bottom of its list of top-10 fastest-growing highways.
Arizona ranked 10th in the country, behind Oklahoma, Nebraska, Louisiana, Texas, and New York, and behind Utah, Iowa, and Illinois.
The state ranks ninth out of 25 states.
Arizona’s fastest-rising highway is Highway 395 in Gilbert, which ranks first in the state for new car registrations.
In the first part of this new survey of the top-30 fastest- growing highways in the U.S., Bleacher was able to obtain more than 20,000 new car and truck registrations for every hour of every day.
Bleacher’s research also found that Arizona has one of the highest rates of vehicle ownership and car crashes in the nation.
In its second half, Bleachers research found that drivers were more likely to buy new cars than they were to buy a new truck.
In addition, drivers were almost two-thirds more likely than they had been before to choose a brand new vehicle.
Bleachers findings also showed that drivers of older vehicles were more than three times as likely to have bought a new car than drivers of newer vehicles.
The state also has the third highest percentage of drivers who have had a crash on their license in the last two years.
The highest number of drivers with crash-related insurance claims was in the Phoenix metro area, with 6.4% of all drivers.
Bleaching out the numbers, Arizona ranked eighth out of the 25 states in which drivers had the highest rate of crash- and collision-related injuries.
Drivers who are driving on Arizona highways are likely to be more distracted, according to the research.
In one of Bleacher researchers’ most comprehensive surveys, drivers in Arizona were three times more likely on average to take out their cellphones than drivers in other states.
The Arizona State Police estimated that drivers with their phones in hand accounted for 16.9% of the state’s total traffic crashes in 2014.
Driving in Arizona can be very expensive, as Bleacher found.
Arizona has the fourth highest median annual household income in the United States.
In 2016, the average annual cost of a home in Arizona was $8,839, the highest in the top 10.
The median annual cost for a car was $17,879.
The cost of gas in Arizona topped $3 a gallon.
The price of gas is not the only thing driving up prices.
According to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, drivers with a license are more likely as a group to use cellphones while driving.
Bleached out the cost of the iPhone 5S, the fifth most expensive smartphone in the world, in Bleacher survey data, the phone cost drivers $6,914.
Driven by the high cost of gasoline and other goods, consumers are spending more money on car insurance, according the American Automobile Association.
In the third quarter of 2017, consumers spent $6.4 billion on car coverage.
The study also found a significant increase in traffic fatalities in Arizona.
The number of traffic fatalities increased by nearly 10% in the second half of 2017 compared to the first half of 2018.
In 2018, there were 1,639 traffic fatalities, a 15% increase over the first 12 months of 2017.
Bleacher’s study found that more than one-third of the deaths that occurred in Arizona in the first year of the study involved vehicles traveling at 50 mph or more.
Bleachers research also showed an increase in the number of vehicle crashes, with crashes occurring in every hour in 2018.
The first six months of 2018 saw the most crashes in any calendar year since 2012, according Bleacher.
In fact, the number was up 25% compared to 2017.
In 2018, the majority of traffic deaths occurred in Phoenix.
Bleaches data found that, between June and September, more than 4,400 people died in Phoenix, including 4,737 deaths in the three months prior to the end of that period.
