Believe it or not, happens more in Denver than it did in DC. I'm shocked honestly.

Tailgating is H O R R I B L E in Wisconsin, and it ticks me off. The person who is doing the tailgating, either has a death wish, or is really stupid. There was a father and son killed on a major WI highway last year, due to the tailgater behind them. Back off, people!!

Yup. That many times. And yes, I am quite agitated by people that tail gate. Indy is awful for it and you can probably bet I have a scowl on my face a lot as a result. Thankfully it is not a major problem in other areas of the country where I travel and have lived.

Put that bumper close to the car in front of you. if you are doing 29 in a 35 mph zone.. and being tailgated... maybe you should speed it up.
If you hit the person in front of you, you ruin everyone's day. Yours, theirs, the drivers behind you. Relax and drive around them.


If you're trolling I apologize. If you're not, I recommend you switch to decaf.

Nope. The roads aren't made for a car length in front of you anymore. When the light turns green you need to get as many people through the light as possible and those slow pokes who act like they are the only ones on the road are completely immortal.

Are you kidding? You can only go so fast before the space between you and the car in front of you is too limited for you to stop in time (suddenly) before hitting that car.

I don't like people that space out at lights or drive one mph when taking a turn at a light either. But I don't deliberately ride their ass either. You will be at fault if you rear end them, not the slowpoke.

Ah, got the sarcasm. Thank God. Though I'm sure there are people that act like this in the real world. If you're in a hurry, leave early. For the record, I'm not a slow poke, probably gotten 15 tickets in my life. But, I do believe in being safe.

Iíve come to the conclusion that people in the DC area, speficially NoVa, genuinely do not know how to drive. The thing most frustrating is people either drive BELOW the speed limit or drive way over the limit doing 60 mph in a 45.

Itís a massive mess and you constantly find yourself driving aggressively because thereís no middle ground.

Sure. Denver's traffic isn't quite as bad, so when you are driving under control and some peeps drive like a jackass, it's more annoying.
