BATON ROUGE- Tuesday morning you're sharing the roads with the nation's worst drivers, a new study reports.

A website that tracks car insurance rates, posted the list. Second to Louisiana was South Carolina.

"People drive reckless and fast," driver Talvin Bibbins of Baton Rouge said. "I mean, they are bad drivers."

Sue Bowers agreed, and added she finds drivers in Texas are better.

People here are friendlier, but not as courteous," Bowers said.

The website blames a lack of enforcement of traffic laws.

The state with the best drivers was Vermont.

But, Louisiana highway leaders said Monday, fewer drivers have died in crashes last year.
