Being from Maryland, right outside of DC, I was instructed to not trust any driver in front, beside or around me. We girls were all told that by my dad. LOL
I make it a habit to stay way back of the cars in front of me. My beloved keeps a bit closer and I’m always getting nervous. There have been a few times cars will cross over the lane from beside the right of us to make left turns and I’m practically stroking. Where’s a cop when one is needed, right??
I have no problem letting cars go right around me when they get mad. As long as I’m doing the correct speed they can get mad all they want; I’m not getting too close to the car in front.
Sounds like your Dad taught you well. Keep being a good example to your beloved. Maybe the lesson will be transferred.
