Why dont people slow down? I drive a little above the speed limit as everyone does, and I am constantly tailgated by some nitwit who needs to go faster. These birdbrains ride right on your bumper trying to get you to go faster on a one lane highway. What is the rush? arent there enough accidents every day. They leave no margin for error or something unexpected. SLOW DOWN!
