So, I commute an hour each way, every day. In a given week, I probably see at least 8 accidents, and ALL are caused by the same thing...people driving
too close to each other, not paying attention, and so they rear-end the person in front of them. Often, 3 or more cars can even be involved!
Why the hell do people insist on doing this!!!??? So far, I've found the best solution to be driving 60-65mph. It is still fast enough for traffic,
but slow enough to where people want to go around me, instead of stay behind me. Still, it is like people FORGET everything they learned when getting
their license about distance, speed, and stopping distance. If somebody rides my rear, they're getting some break taps. If they still don't get the
picture, and choose one of the OTHER THREE LANES of traffic besides mine, then I'll slow down all the way to 50 if I have to.
I'm lucky, I basically drive a steel tank (an F-350 dual wheeled pickup), so anybody hitting me is toast, but still, I have no wish to deal with an
accident. Just takes a LITTLE bit of common sense folks. There is NO need to ride someone's rear in traffic. Accomplishes nothing.
