"The Irony of Traffic..." James "Kimo" Rosen

People tailgate at high speeds and give space at slow speeds, Why?

I have recently noticed something I find hard to comprehend.

Most drivers I have encountered on Kaua'i  tailgate at an alarming rate. The few times I drive and do the speed limit of 40 there is always someone one or two car lengths behind me. Most people drive so close I can see birth marks on their faces through my rear view and side view mirrors. The law states,  there should be at least one car length for every 10 mph.

Here's the kicker, the irony, when traffic is  at a standstill in Kapa'a, and people are doing 5-10 mph there usually 3-4 four car lengths between cars.

I just don't get it.
