Does it feel like drivers are particularly bad in Nebraska? Well, we're not the absolute worst, but we're far from the best.

According to a new study from auto insurance site QuoteWizard, Nebraska ranks as No. 6 in the list of states with the worst drivers. Iowa ranked No. 27.

The study ranked California as No. 1, followed by Minnesota, Utah, South Carolina and Washington.
