This post Ever been behind one of those people... makes me wonder why, when I'm doing 5+ over the speed limit, I can't see their headlights because they're on my ass? Pass or get off my ass!

ETA: Two lane road.

Sure, plenty of times.. but then I'm usually moving into the far right lane so they can go play their aggressive driver games.

If youre going well over the speed limit on a 2 lane road,and you cant see head lights.....Its grounds for a brake check down to the legal speed limit.

Nobody minds people driving slow in the right lane, or driving slow on a one-lane road but pulling off occasionally to let folks by.

What we mind is people impeding the flow of traffic by driving slow in the left lane or deliberately blocking the only lane.

You're not the only person in the world, and sometimes other people have to get somewhere quickly.

Tires kick up rocks sometimes. Keep a couple in your drink holder.

It's even worse on a four lane road with no traffic

Why yes. Some lady (turned out to be from Maryland) thought it was a good idea to do that to me while I was doing the speed limit on an icy road in bad weather. And I was in a Mustang, which does not like ice and snow on roads.

It's like, there's no fucking way I'm going any faster. The road conditions blow. And if you slide into my ass and hurt my new Mustang I'm eating your children.

If I am already speeding and someone is riding my ass on the road and are unwilling to pass me, I usually will slow down to the speed limit just to piss them off. If they want to tailgate me, there will be consequences. Hitting the brakes works well.

When I'm going a reasonable speed and somebody begins riding my ass, .... I slow down. . . .. . and I slow down . . . .. and I slow down.
