I'm sick of the northeast and it's breakneck pace,and want to go somewhere with a slow pace. I've thought about places like Nevada and Montana because it's less populated,but that doesn't necessarily mean slower.

If you're looking for slow drivers, then that's going to make your problems even worse. But how slow of a pace are you looking for? There's many big cities throughout the US that offer a more laid-back lifestyle, you don't have to be in the middle of nowhere to get a slower pace. What are some things you're looking for in your new home?

I don't care for cities much,so middle of nowhere is preferable.

Forget Montana. As a resident and motorist, I feel I can attest to this:

Montana ranks 1st for worst drivers | Latest News - Home

As for Nevada, it's pretty so-so, at least north of Vegas (I'd personally rather drive in LA).

I try to stay away from the cities...in the Vegas area I might opt for Henderson,Boulder City,or even Pahrump.

Nix Henderson and you would probably be fine.

Move to Carrollton, Ga. I am 77 years old and I can assure you I drive slow.

Predictably, Florida has a lot of slow drivers (snowbirds and permanent resident retirees) but good luck finding a spot that isn't already overrun by other transplants.

I've been to Florida and I-95 speaks for itself;

One of my old neighbors moved to Hernando near western FL ,which seems kind of out in the middle of nowhere...

But surely there's some kind of middle ground between a city like Philadelphia and the middle of nowhere? It sounds like you are done with life and want to exile yourself, at least that's how it comes off.
