When there is a turn off ramp from a ground level street up hill to a stopsign at the end of an overpass ( going over the street previously on).... a veh. is coming up quickly from behind.... you signal, and pull over toward right curb.... there are no line markings anywhere.... you pull over early; hoping to give enough confidence to that following driver to blow by you... and even though you felt like you had to add a little brake pedal as an exclamation mark to MOTIVATE that guy..........

you still have enough momentum left to coast up to the stop sign, even though this is only the 2nd time tried here, and your practice is few, and far between, because you only drive through here about 3 times a month!!

Giddy SMILES!!!!

When there is more left of your tires and brake pads than there was when you checked them six months ago.

When you plan where other drivers will pass you.
When after your once a month agresive pass you pull back into your lane and emediatly EOC for a very long time/distance.

...slow drivers annoy you. They always slow down at the wrong time!
...you forget how to put gas in your car.
...you need to get a tire pressure gauge that goes higher.
