Great. That driver was going much faster than I as evidenced by the way they caught up to me. Now I've pulled over. You'd think they'd speed off ahead.

But no, lately I've been plagued by folks who immediately start to match the speed I'm doing in the right hand lane.

W!
T!!
F!!!

Is up with that?!?!


You were the front person who would be the person who gets caught by the police for speeding. They're unwilling to be the leader. When you pull into the right lane, they're stuck out there and don't know what to do. They won't pass you because then their arse in on the line.

I had an interesting experience several years ago. I was cruising through West Virgina at about 80 mph late at night on the interstate. That is a pretty fast speed for their winding roads. When I am driving late at night, I don't like someone following close behind. I passed someone on the highway. They accelerated and started following me just a few car lengths back. I got tired of it so I pulled over at the next rest stop. The offender pulling into the rest area too. When I came out of the bathroom, I could see him sitting in his car waiting for me. I sat down of a bench and waited. Eventually he got tired of waiting, started up his engine and got back on the highway.
