Tired of drivers that won't let you merge, speed up to stop someone from passing you, and use the turning lane to beat traffic? You're not alone. A new study from Kars4Kids says drivers in New York state are the worst in the nation.

The study mentioned the three issues above, and gave New York average grades for using turn signals, stealing parking spots, and responding rudely when being tailgated.

Overall, the state ranked No. 50, and was given an 'F' grade.

The study also looked at other factors, finding women to be more courteous than men, and older drivers to generally be more courteous than younger drivers.

The study relied on survey questions, asking people how they would react to different situations.
