I'm seeking my small piece of Utopia as well as I want out after almost 38 months down here.
We were finally able to escape Philly after years and it's like night and day here in Seattle...you won't be losing your mind anymore here;

Yeah but watch out for these passive Seattle drivers. The truth is they can turn aggressive on a dime! You never know what you are going to run into the Puget Sound area.

I've driven to Seattle a few times since I've been living out here and honestly ran into way less problems than I'd expected...

Shhh, you'll destroy many a worldview if you inform people that there are rednecks in the Pacific Northwest too...

Plenty...name a town south of Auburn or Tacoma or north of Lynnwood or Everett...Not everyone, but well represented. Just watch any old episode of Cops.

I drive across South Dakota frequently, and I am regularly passed by in state drivers when I am going five over the speed limit. Not everyone is slow.

80 is now in effect in Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, South Dakota, Texas, Nevada, and Montana. However, this does not apply to all areas. Some are lower when you get into congested or mountain regions, and some are higher when you get into West Texas.

Oregon is set to increase to 70 from 65 in the Spring of '16. Oregon has remained low at 65 for years, so this is a much needed revision.

Washington has considered increasing to 75 in certain areas, but there is currently a study ordered by Gov. Inslee. I think the Gov should understand the wide open areas of Eastern WA, since he represented that area for many years.

Wisconsin is up to 70. Basically, everyone still drives 65-70 like before, with a few people whipping by at 85. Eventually it'll shift up a few mph, I hope.

Oklahoma City has the slowest drivers. Its filled with people who think they are doing society a favor by going the speed limit in the passing lane and slowing up traffic. The other lanes typically go 55 mph despite a speed limit of 65 or 70.

Still underposted. The Oregon freeway speed limit was 75 until the 55mph nonsense started in 1974.
