MIAMI A new survey ranks Florida's highways 41st in the nation.

The 17th Annual Highway Performance report from the Reason Foundation looked at traffic congestion, fatalities and pavement condition, among other factors.

The survey did give the state high marks for highways in rural areas, but it wasn't enough to overcome its low rankings for funding to keep up Florida's more than 12,000 miles of highway.

North Dakota and South Carolina roads rated highest in the overall rankings from the libertarian think tank. New Jersey's were the lowest.
