Iowans aren’t very nice drivers, a new survey promoting better driving habits in the U.S. shows.
Iowa earned a D when it comes to having the most courteous drivers, Kars4Kids.org reports through its summer driving awareness campaign, Drive Human.
Even worse, the state recorded an F for not letting cars merge in front of you and the use of turn signals.
“Iowans are not nice to slow drivers but will respect your need for speed if you try to pass them,” Kars4Kids.org said.
Overall, Iowa placed 41st out of all the U.S. states in Kars4Kids.org survey. Wisconsin was the only other Midwestern state to join the Hawkeye State in the bottom 10 at 46th.
In the Midwest, South Dakota had the best finish in 11th. Michigan was next at 15th, Minnesota in 23rd, Missouri in 29th, Illinois in 31st, Indiana, Ohio, Nebraska and North Dakota in 34th, 35th, 36th and 37th, respectively, and Kansas in 39th.
Idaho earned the top spot on the list, followed by New Mexico in second and Oregon in third. New York finished as the least courteous driving state, Kars4Kids.org said.
“As the rudest driving state, New York drivers live up to their reputation,” the nonprofit organization said. “They are least likely to let others merge, the second most likely to slow down when tailgated and to use the turning lane to beat traffic.”
