    One of the most common causes of these sort of crash scenes is the
    behavior known as tailgating.

    It is a basic fact of physics that two cars cannot occupy the same space at
    one time without causing problems..

    My response to tail sniffing tailgaiters is to pull over and let them threaten
    other drivers.

    Keep in mind that a car is a deadly weapon in the hands of a fool.

    On a recent trip back from Kona to the South side on good old Hwy 11 we were being tailgated by a silver 4 door rental for a couple miles until this guy had enough of us and decided to pass us in a blind curve. One of many...
    How do I know it was a rental? Because as this As**ole passed us in this curve doing 60 or better in a 35mph zone along with crossing the double line with oncoming traffic I could see the little white bar code stickers in the corner of the windows...
    The sad part, his two kids in the back seat (about 8-10 years old) were completely oblivious while I could see his wife with her mouth wide open as he barley made it back into our lane before slamming into a pickup head on.
    pet peeve? More like formidable!

    I guess he heard the volcano was running low on lava and he better get there quick with his camera or else!

    Besides bus drivers making sure they make the trip as slow as possible, why do so many car drivers stop at lights with a minimum average of 2 car lengths between them and the car in front? If you watch long enuf they almost always end up creeping up until it's within reason, so why so scared? I saw nearly an entire block filled with just 3 cars in every lane this morning, all refusing to drive sensibly, probably scared to death. Yet, if you pull in front of them they get quite mad

    People don't want to be a "close talker" on the road and give other drivers their space.

    ...Local people who throw crap like cigarettes out of there car while driving. I give new mainland transplants and tourists a pass just because. But I think we locals should be holding ourselves to a higher standard.

    No, not surprising at all. In fact, I quite suspected this was the case.
