Here’s video of a Clover I found myself behind the other day… .
The guy was driving approximately 10-15 MPH below the posted limit (55) for openers and of course, wouldn’t just pull off onto the shoulder – which is what IDs him as a Clover, by the way. Not that he is a slow driver. Some people are timid or for some other reason drive slowly. Thats ok.
What’s not ok is failing to yield when you’re driving 10-15 MPH below the posted limit – especially given that almost everyone drives 5-10 MPH faster than most speed limits, because most speed limits are under-posted by at least 5-10 MPH over reasonable speeds.
That is the mark of a Clover.
This one was just that. 10-15 MPH below the 55 MPH limit and making no effort to be civilized and make way for other drivers trying to get where they need to be at legal speed and before the next ice age.
This Clover then decided he needed to look at something in the field off to the right and literally almost stopped in the road so he could gawp at the cows or whatever it was.
That’s when I decided I’d had enough and did what was necessary to get by this road turd.
