It takes talent and a brain to be a hypermile driver
It doesnt to be a tailgate driver
Its interesting how many change Dr Jeckle/Mr Hyde the second they get behind the wheel.
I could care less how pissed they get. if Im reasonable, smooth and courteous checking my rearview from the right lane maintaining speed limit and they dont collect me in a crash go find the next driver to push and flash lights
I enjoy waving as I drive by the cop that pulled them over. Sweet

Right? And it's not a new thing.



Fortunately for me, people in and around my area don't seem to get too annoyed at the guy hanging out in the right lane, often doing a little under the speed limit, and coasting to stoplights. Only gotten a honk or two since I started a couple years ago.

And if they can't read or don't want to follow my "Hypermiling -- Please Pass" bumper sticker, it's on them.

I'm 6'5" and 280lbs. For some reason people never seem to want to vent their anger at me. Luckily for me we don't have guns over here.

... or unfortunately, depending on your point of view.

I enjoy observing which group gets pissed off the most with the short fuse already lit. No surprise from the middle age guy in the muscle car or the guy in the great big truck. But I cant understand crazy mom in the minivan or the young punk in the Hyundai or Toyota who thinks its a muscle car. But the one I almost had gut wrenching laugh over was the 20 something year old who gave me the finger from his stock Prius. I saluted back with a thumbs up as I continued past them pulling off into the gas station.
