Good luck leaving gaps between you and the vehicle behind or in front of you in Floridexico. These people learned how to drive in Mexico City. A gap to them is six inches. Wait until you experience the thrill of a motorcyclist with no helmet riding your left rear fender close enough to touch it at 60 mph. A daily occurrence in Tampa.

If you have a 5 - 10 second gap in front of you, that impatient cyclist will be in front of you, hanging off the fender of that car. He will not be able to resist filling in that gap.

This keeps all of the jerks in front of you, where you can keep an eye on them!

Just give it a try. Leave 5 - 10 seconds between you and the car in front of you. 10 Mississippis. See how much longer it takes to get where you're going, and see how much more relaxed you are when you get there.

You will take about 10% longer, in my experience. Five minutes on an hour trip. But your blood pressure will never get above 120/75.

I had a blonde women tailgating my car last weekend. She was hunched over the steering wheel and was so close I could not see the car in side mirrors. She could have easily changed lanes but for some it is a sport to do this.
