People in Oregon are very laid back. Lots of people resting in the sun. And very polite drivers, they always do the driver wave and seem to patiently wait their turn to get in a lane or turn a corner.
While there I heard in the news that Oregon is 50th in America for High School graduates, so maybe they are a little too laid back.
My total score for Oregon out of 50 is 31.
