I knew about the first part,but I wouldn't guess on the other places. When I was out in Indiana & Michigan those were probably some of the places I had the most paid back encounters,some of down south too like Virginia.

My opinion is New Mexico. Up here in CO, many with NM plates tend to stay in the left lane and travel 5 to 10 MPH below the speed limit. We have a state law that primarily limits use of the left lane for passing only. There are signs posted every few miles, overhead digital boards flash "State Law, Stay Right Accept to Pass". But most won't move over. Enough to instill a little "virtual" road rage.

I drive in Vegas for a living... There's a reason auto insurance is high here.

Add:

9,000 cab drivers
Locals who have moved here from all over the US (melting pot of driving styles)
Retirees everywhere.
Tourists sightseeing and not paying attention.
Booze everywhere.
Foreigners renting cars.

According to this survey...
Ten States With the Worst Drivers

Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, or Connecticut are your best bets.

Define 'worst'...

In my experience Florida and Connecticut can get pretty breakneck at times.

Not on a 4 lane interstate (2 lanes each direction). That's why the law was put in place.

Usually interstates are at least 3 lanes,state routes are usually 2.
