SEATTLE, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- In a competition no one would want to win, Louisiana came out on top -- or more accurately, at the bottom -- as the state with the country's worst drivers.

Car Insurance Comparison.com -- a Web site based in Seattle and operated by 360 Quote LLC -- reported Friday it had compiled data on driving fatalities from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, along with data from the American Motorists Association on which states hand out the most tickets and data in drunken driving from Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

When the data were tallied a ranking was given and the higher the ranking the worse the news for the particular state -- in this case Louisiana.

Missouri was ranked second-worst, followed by Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Arizona, Kentucky, Alabama, Montana and Nevada.

Rode Island drivers were ranked best, followed by Connecticut, Massachusetts, Virginia and New Hampshire.
