Gotta Wonder!!! WHY do some drivers feel the need to follow so close behind a car?
My trip to work is all country roads - 55 miles an hour speed zone for about 85% of my trip. Yesterday morning at 5am I see two vehicles coming towards me. One large pickup truck and right behind it a very small compact car. The car is so small I think it could fit in the bed of the truck. The compact car was driving so close to the pickup truck that I thought the truck might be towing the car. Nope the car was tailgating. Now mind you there were no other cars on the road. I started to think to myself...what in heaven's name is that small car thinking?
Do tailgaters think:
- if they drive so close the vehicle in front of them will go faster - WRONG the majority slow down
- that they are intimating the other driver - WRONG
- that they are RIGHT? - WRONG
Gotta Wonder if the vehicle in front of them stops fast - who will they blame when they run into the back end of the vehicle?
Will they blame the driver of the vehicle in front...they should not have stopped so fast or will they blame themselves? I am betting they will blame the driver. Anyone that feels the need to drive that close to another vehicle surely would never blame themselves!
