This afternoon on my way home from work I was tailgated by a big pick-up truck for about a mile southbound on Speedway Boulevard (from Campbell Drive down to North Canal Drive), and for the entire 3-mile stretch westbound on North Canal Drive (from Speedway Boulevard over to Tennessee Road).
There were countless opportunities for this big pick-up truck to pass me on the left with great ease on both Speedway Boulevard as well as North Canal Drive, but the driver declined to do so – opting instead to follow my bumper closely for some 4 miles through the east of Homestead.
That left me with no choice but to slow down to below my normal cruising speed to just a few miles-per-hour above the posted speed limit of 40 MPH on both roads. He who tailgates me is he who gets to drive just a tiny bit above the posted speed limit.
What makes this particular ‘Road Rage File’ any different than several others that were posted over the previous 6 months ? Not too much actually, but the first 13 of ‘The Road Rage Files’ were posted over on the former MySpace blog, and a lot of you are new to this blog since we moved it over here to WordPress. This is a continuing message series here on this blog (one of the most popular and most anticipated), so look for more exciting incidents of bad driving all around me on a regular basis as they occur.
