Yep. I'm from North Dakota. I thought the same thing when I moved to kansas. I figured out why when I was passing everybody doing 40-50 in the road and they were plowing into ditches at 20 mph.
It kills me. If it rains, most drive 10-20mph under speed limit, white knuckled, leaning forward over the steering wheel, every time. Ice, half drive like it's the Indy 500. The other half I'm firmly convinced just steer for the ditch.
