It's because of how spread out we are over here in the Northwest. So yes, everyone drives. Other than the cyclists who hog the roads and gum up traffic if they don't get their precious bike lanes.
Also, people in this area purposefully made the roads crappy and refused to improve or expand them thinking it would deter people from moving into the area... it didn't work and now no one wants to commit funds to fix the problem. They would rather waste billions of dollars to build a 10x over-budget light rail that will be terribly pathetic compared to other cities and let the worlds largest tunnel digger (rented from Japan, her name is Bertha) sit below Seattle for over a year because no body bothered to plan the route and READ the city blueprints to know where digger-stopping pipes have been since the 1920s.
The word of the day is COMPETENCY in Washington State.
