LOL, outdated stereotype much? I live in Florida and it's consistently a well above the speed limit state with all of the major highways averaging a good 10 mph above the posted limits.

I was going to say this too. Places like Vermont, Western Massachusetts, and Maine people drive damn politely. I am always amazed when I go back up there too how if you are waiting at a crosswalk drivers will come to a full stop and let you go across.

Of course, you still can't just blithely cross a crosswalk without looking, because a Connecticut or New York driver might come along and hit you.

Emphasis on the well above...I've seen things fly by me I didn't even see coming

People arrogantly tend to do that in New Jersey,a sense of entitlement,causing constant driver/pedestrian friction...but then that's New Jersey

I say finding any where with a slow driving pace is going to be hard.

Thanks to the "bro-truck" epidemic and "The Fast and The Furious" movie culture, anyone under fifty is either going to be spreading vehicle noise pollution or unsafe driving wherever they roll into.
And if they got kids getting up near driving age, time to head to some place with no roads and only foot trails.

Moving from the Victorville area in CA to what I thought was small town, Clovis NM didn't seem to be any different when it came to noise levels.
Same noises I heard over there (rumble and fart cannon exhausts), are just as present over here.

The car culture remains pretty much supreme

Avoid Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey (almost all of the northeast), California, and Florida. Those places have a high amount of speeders. In Connecticut even if you go 75 in a 65 you'll still get passed. If i had to take a guess i'd say certain parts of Iowa, Kansas, and Vermont. That's just from my personal experience.

I have lived in some of the least populated states in the country. Basically everyone drives the speed limit or under, at least on the interstates. Traffic is nonexistent on the interstates. Anyways while driving on the interstates in that area there were several times where I could see someone way in the distance coming up behind me fast. Without knowing anything other than just seeing them flying up behind me, I would say oh that must be someone from the East Coast or California. I was right 99% of the time.
