> show acts of road rage
Today I see lots
of people leaving huge gaps. I've seen blogs where people in Los Angeles were complaining about all the crazy gap-leaving drivers, and speculating on what was going on. Why? Maybe it's because many millions of people saw my original article http://trafficwaves.org
, and hundreds of thousands watched this video. Nah. More probably its the huge community of hyper-miler drivers who, in order to never touch the brakes, constantly leave giant gaps ahead of themselves.
But back in the old days on this stretch of highway (15 yrs ago,) sometimes the guy directly behind me would leap out and go around. They never complained, instead they'd roar down to the far end of the large gap. This would only happen once a week or so.
