Here’s video of a Clover Encounter I had the other day. I – along with two others – got caught behind a minivan creeping along at the Clover Usual 10-15 MPH below the speed limit and making no effort to relieve the back up by moving off onto the shoulder or some such to allow all the cars stacked up behind him to get by.
For a Clover, the less than 30 seconds or so it would take to pull off onto the shoulder is too much trouble; he rather waste 10-15 minutes (or more) of your time instead.
There is a secondary Clover in this video as well. It is the frustrated Jeep driver behind the Clover in the minivan at the head of the conga line. I understand his frustration – but riding the Clover’s ass will not (usually) make the Clover change his behavior for the better and besides, tailgating is also bad (and dangerous) driving behavior. One does not solve the Clover problem by becoming a Clover.
