A Driving Tip

IN ALL SITUATIONS not involving emergency vehicles, to which all drivers must yield when such vehicles are underway and displaying flashing signal lights, the overtaken vehicle has the right of way, and the overtaking vehicle must yield, or slow, unless passing is permitted and may be safely undertaken, in which case, the overtaking vehicle may pass.

Otherwise, you gotta slow down behind the slowpoke. Sucks to be you. You do not have a constitutional right to go faster than everybody else. The speed limit is a maximum, not a baseline. And getting right up in somebody’s tailpipe to get them to speed up is dangerous and therefore inappropriate and unlawful — not to mention stupid — and if you get a ticket for following too close, you deserve it. Asshole.
