    i have idiots passing or attempting to pass me each and every morning. in no pass zones… in all types of risky situations.. just for a little “track position”. Aggressive drivers are the worst and deserve a date with a large tree. Just “fall in” and follow assure u , u will get there … without risking your life or others. Leave a few minutes earlier.. and everyone can live to see another day
