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.
