You Better Back The Truck Up!!!

I “accidently” speed just like everyone else does.

However, there is one place that I don’t speed….Residential Areas.

If the speed limit is 25 or 35, I don’t care how fast you think I should be going, I am gonna do the speed limit.

And you riding my ass, well that is only going to piss me off, and make your commute that much more frustrating.

I used to gently pump my brakes, until I kept hearing a car insurance commercial on the radio saying that that was illegal.

Now, I wait until there is a pull off area and I slow and ease off to the side.

And as you speed pass I seamlessly and gracefully,BOOM, pull out right behind you.

This has been quite effective in freaking people out!

One of two things happens.

Either they drive like a bat out of hell trying to get away from me (not my intention, but they were going to drive fast anyway) as I continue to do the speed limit.

I don’t know, maybe they fear I am taking down their license plate number or something.

Or, taa daa, they realize they were being an ass and decide, hey, maybe I should do the speed limit in this residential area too.

That’s my pet peeve for the year.

I’ve been meaning to write about it.

If you are a tailgater.  Get a new hobby.

Or for your own sanity, just don’t follow too closely to little yellow S2000s.

    Four to six seconds following distance for speeds under 30 mph …..Six to eight sec for speeds over 30 😉

    The only thing I hate more is the driver who comes roaring around me on a double line street In a big expensive car. Always expect a vanity tag – “ENTITLED”

      Hate to say it, but it has been my experience that entitled soccer moms are the worse b/c they are also chatting it up on their cell phones.

      Kinda funny, I haven’t changed out my tags yet b/c I am not so sure I want people to know my name. hahaha Oh Shit! It’s ‘The Lisa’ again. hahaha

    I don’t always come to a complete stop at a stop sign, but when I do, it’s because the guy behind me is being a jerk! (I saw that somewhere and dang it – it’s true!)
    I don’t speed through residential areas or school zones! As I’m teaching my son to drive (who has actually been hit by a car, but no damage!) I let him know that I don’t speed because I couldn’t handle it if I hit a kid, much less killed one! And to think about that – how would he feel if that happened? I just don’t get it – it’s not worth it!

    Now, open road or our freeways? Then fugettaboutit!

      I am with you Kate! Your whole life would change if you hit someone, or worse killed them. And I am not sure how one lives with that when they were simply running a little late for something or just impatient by nature.

      Now I have been known to get annoyed with people who don’t drive at least the speed limit. Say like 25 in a 35 zone. Even if I am not in a hurry, I am like, for the love of God, please at least go the speed limit!!!! But then I back the truck up too.

      Now, open road or freeways, I’ll race you!!! hahaha

    I’ve been known to stop ( clueless drivers ) and ask them for their license ……when they say : ” why “….. I reply ….because you shouldn’t be behind the wheel , you need to re-apply …haaaaaa
