The other day, there was some lame-o driver on the freeway, doing about 35mph . . . it was NOT raining that day, by the way, so there was absolutely no excuse. It was actually kind of dangerous, because everybody coming up behind this guy naturally wants to pass him
Traffic was flowing, no accidents, weather was fine, everybody else was doing probably 70 - 75
Yeah, I could see how relative speed could result in an accident, if everybody is doing 70 - 75, and suddenly this guy is there, doing about 35mph
It wasn't some truck, loaded down with tools or equipment. It was just one guy in a plain jane sedan, the car was only a few years old, so I'm assuming it was capable of keeping up with traffic.
It was obvious the problem was the driver, NOT the car
Our shop is close enough to the freeway, that I can see it, and hear the vehicles. Every once in awhile, a highway patrol officer will pull up behind one of those slowpokes and tell them to either speed up, or get off the freeway. I always bust out laughing, when I see and hear that
