I do think that a lot of drivers here in Baton Rouge are very aggressive. If you ask long time natives, though, all that aggressive driving and crime is completely due to New Orleans people who moved this way after Katrina. I don't think this is 100% the case though there is probably some truth in that. People in Ponchatoula also blame a lot of their crime problems and traffic on New Orleans transplants. Yes New Orleans has a reputation as a friendly city if you're a tourist or travel writer from New York, Los Angeles or Chicago but its quite aggressive and fast paced compared to the rest of Louisiana.

In rural Livingston Parish people tend to drive very slow, often below the speed limit, kind of like West Virginia.

But having traveled the country, I found the most aggressive driving places to be New York, New Jersey, the DC area, Miami, and L.A. Dallas was pretty bad too.

It's among the worst of all states in it's mortality rate -

And it's poverty rate is off the charts -

I think a better state to live in instead of Louisiana would be like Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine!!
You mean this rating is accurate?

New Jersey is the worst state in America, followed by New York and California. Michigan is also a miserable state as well.

I'd say all Southern states are miserable, followed by the Northeast & most of the Midwest. The only states I am considering living in are western: Nevada, California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and maybe New Mexico. If it weren't for religion, I would add Utah to the list. For now, it's the CA desert followed by Nye county.

Yep. Those states are horrible. That is precisely why so many people choose to live in them and why they are the centers of so much of our nation's economic output, innovation and creativity, etc.

It's beyond scandalous, how Louisiana for 80 years has given up billions in possible corporate tax revenues, by permanently exempting some of the nation's largest Oil and natural gas extraction facilities, often secretly without public input. These revenues could be used to improve the lives of citizens in so many ways. This is completely opposite of the policy of Texas and other Oil-producing states.
