This has happened to me more than once, and I’m sick of it. I’m gonna get the bastards back by … anonymously posting about it on a message board they probably don’t read!! That’ll show them! Dickwads!
On the interstate near my house, the left lane is HOV during rush hour. Rest of the time, anyone can drive in it. At least three times, I’ve been driving in the next to left lane, behind a car or in a line of traffic. Each time, I’ve been driving at a decent speed, nothing excessive (70-72 mph in a 65 zone), and been driving at the same speed as the cars in front of me. Further, each time the left (sometimes HOV) lane has been completely clear.
And each time, some moron zoomed up behind me and starts tailgating me, aggressively.
The only explanation I can think of is that they thought the (clear) left lane was still HOV, and it would be illegal for them to pass me on the left. Well, guess what, shitheads, tailgating me is illegal, too! If you are going to break a goddamn law (or at least think you a breaking a law), break the law that doesn’t threaten to cause a wreck and kill me.
Ha! Gotcha back!
