Some of you apparently do not realize how you appear to us high riders (SUV's/pickup trucks/vans). In a car you know someone is tailgating you if, lets say, you can't see the bumper of the car behind you in your rearview mirror. Unless you are driving a sponsored and logo'd car in a left-er-ly fashion, whilst wearin' a flame retardant suit, a la NASCAR,
And I think everyone is aware of the accommodations they should make around semi's:
|Stay out of the shaded areas or things could get shady for you real quick.|
But I'm not sure
1) That you have good breaks on your car.
B) That you have the reaction time of Flash Gordon.
III) That your insurance is up to date (and that you aren't getting too close to your point allotment on your drivers license because anytime you hit someone from the rear you are at fault for not keeping a lil' thing called assured clear distance [Ohio Revised Code: Assured Clear Distance]).
Listen, I completely understand that it's not your fault that my tailgate height, and trajectory of sight means you need to adjust your driving style behind me. But in fairness, it's not my fault that you can't see around my ride from your 5" off the pavement view, but I consciously make accommodations to be thoughtful of your perception each time I drift a lil' right in my lane in traffic so that you can have an opportunity to see what's going on in front of me. See. It's called bein' courteous. Which is all I'm askin' from ya. Be courteous and get the fuck off my ass.
