Here’s today’s Clover – the dump truck (or farm tractor) Clover:
This is the Clover who (a) refuses to pass a lumbering/slow-moving vehicle traveling 20 MPH below the (under)posted speed limit. And (b) makes it hard if not impossible for anyone else to pass the lumbering/slow-moving vehicle.
I encountered this Clover earlier today. He’s the one in the small SUV ahead of the car in front of me – and behind the slow-moving dump truck.
Way behind the dump truck.
The truck – being loaded down with gravel or whatever – was not able to maintain the posted speed limit. This is understandable – and so, not objectionable.
What is objectionable, though, is Clover’s falling back 50 yards behind the dump truck, so that the car behind him (and the cars behind that car, including me) have that much less time/opportunity to pass. This is so typically Clover. That they’re in no hurry isn’t the problem. It’s that they don’t give a damn that others who are not retired from the DMV or other government “jobs” actually might need to get where they’re going in a timely manner.
For Clover, the world is what’s ahead of him – never what’s in the rearview.
