What gerneration is that, how old are you JDG?
It may be normal but that doesnt make it right!!! If something does
happen and the guys in front of you stop or slow suddenly BANG!!!,
thats why there are chain reaction wrecks! The ppl in front of you
"may not want to stop anymore than you" but the reality is its not
your choice whether traffic ahead of you stops or not! I cant count
the number of chain reactions I've witnessed and cuz I had a space
cushion, I continue on my way while the dummys spend an hour filling
out accident reports.
I cant believe you actually think that "more importantly ppl with
think youre a patsy and coward" cuz of your driivng skills, I DONT
CARE WHAT PPL THINK OF ME WHEN i'M DRIVING, I'm on the road to get
WRONG!!! Watch what happens when I move my 80,000lb, 70' vehicle onto
the dotted line a little bit toward you (I'm not saying run you off
the road) but all I gotta do is ease over toward you and taa-daa I
have room to manuever!
I CAN keep line jumpers out and have many times, especially if moving
slow, I just hang tight enought to the car in front and ease toward
the line jumper and they run out of room, if your only moving a few
mph, it can be done!
Its not stupid to tell car and truck drivers not to tailgate, it
