This friggin' menace actually has one of the new "God Bless America" tags. From my observations, that's your first clue you're around a bad driver... like this minivan-wielding jackass.
You know, there's no good time or good reason to tailgate someone... but one of the worst times to tailgate someone comes when the roads are covered in snow, slush and God-knows-what. This is especially true when a truck just slipped past you and is regularly inching into your lane, which would put the other driver into the slush in the turn lane. I'll be damned if I increase my speed and risk hitting ice and wrecking just to get your dumb ass off my ass, or just because you want to go faster and can't be arsed to go around. And here's a hint... maybe if the speed of the car you're tailgating goes down, it's a sign. GO AROUND!

It is very nerve racking when I am trying to take my time to get home safely and out of the snowy conditions and you get other drivers tailgaiting. It really increases my anxiety. I always stay home from work that I know will be snowy conditons. But if I leave work early and still did not beat that storm sytstem. I just take my time. It it is difficult because I know there are drivers that are nervous driving in the snow but they don't consider others that might be nervous.
