    In my younger years with a moderately quick vehicle I used to slow down to 30mph in second gear, every time an over take was attempted i'd floor it (could do 70mph in 2nd) until they got the ideal. Obviously I was a bit younger and stupid at the time

    Up here they don't even try to overtake. Just sit there as if they've taken a 25 year lease on the ground behind me. The road is 100 miles long. Why sit 100cm behind me?

    As we get older we realise we are no longer invincible and could suffer bodily harm. Hence always try to get out the situation unhurt and alive and preferably without road rage ensuing.
