Here’s today’s Clover – the geezer in the white Blazer ahead of the blue minivan. The Blazer never quite gets to the speed limit – 55 MPH – but when he gets close (47 MPH!) he gets nervous – and slows down some more!
The minivan following the Clover wants to pass, but doesn’t dare – out of fear of an AGW possibly appearing. It’s illegal speeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeding to exceed the posted speed limit, even if it’s the safe thing to do.
The law says you can’t drive faster than 55 (in this case) to pass the Clover doing 47. Which would require a half-mile long passing zone.
So few dare make the attempt.
I, however, never leave home without my AGW Detector – and advise the same sound policy for everyone else.
