Traffic woes got you down? It could be worse in the other 49 states. In fact, according to one national survey, it is.

The website recently conducted a survey campaign called “Drive Human” in which they asked 50 people in each of the 50 states questions like “How often do you signal?” and “What do you do when trailing a slow driver?” After compiling all 2,500 responses, it turns out Idaho was rated as the most polite state in which to drive. New York came in at the bottom of the list.

The goal of the campaign is to remind drivers that they share the road with other people, not faceless cars. So next time someone cuts you off and you prepare that one special finger for a response, remember you live in the most polite state in which to drive and flash them a peace sign instead.
