I think states, generally, do an awful job of educating drivers, and an even more awful job of re-testing drivers periodically. In Oklahoma, the biggest issue is that people don't know how four way stop signs work. They're all so polite, that it's not uncommon to sit for up to 30 seconds waiting for the person whose turn it really is to go, or until they wave others on.
There's also those who stop dead in the middle of the street at a green light to let someone merge in, even though there's a huge gap a couple of cars back.
All in all, I'll take overly-courteous idiot drivers than the kind in Wisconsin who are paralyzed by fear of state troopers and don't understand that it's dangerous for everyone to do the same speed right next to one another in both lanes of traffic.
