I've noticed it doesn't much matter what speed I drive, there's always *someone* running up the back end of my car.
Yesterday (Saturday) I drove from Opotiki to Auckland. I was doing 100-110-ish for as much as you can without spinning off the road into a ditch. The rain was torrential at times and the wind was pretty high from the west. Visibilty was pretty poor at times.
Yet there were guys (always a guy) following others at maybe 2 car lengths.....if that.
I generally just pull over as soon as one of these tos.....um...drivers appears behind me. I have no desire to save them from earning a well-deserved ticket and demerit points somewhere down the road ahead of me. If not this time, then next time or the time after.
I've also noticed they tend to run in "clumps". Up front is the guy doing 10km over the speed limit who sees no need to pull over. Behind him will be a series of vehicles, each closely tailing the other, all waiting to pass I suppose.
When one of these 'clumps' turns up I generally pull over before they even reach me.......let them pass.....and I then enjoy 5-10 mins of empty road (on a weekday.....weekends sees more people about on the highways).
