If I am already driving 5 mph over the speed limit and you are behind me, tailgating me and throwing your arms around and otherwise acting like an exasperated bitch, I will go slower.
I won’t brake. I’ll just ease off the accelerator, and if we happen to come to a stop sign, I will sloooowly advance, look back and forth four to five times, and then roll away like molasses.
Seriously. Try it next time. I don’t care if you’re late. There are people who speed up under the pressure of an aggressive driver, and I am not one of them.
