Driving in Tuscaloosa lately feels like some sort of decathlon. There's road work EVERYWHERE, and with population on the rise there are more drivers out and about than ever--but most of those drivers don't know this one simple fact. Do you?

I haven't conducted an official and/or scientific study, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that 65% of Tuscaloosa drivers don't realize this one truth:

TAILGATING THE CAR IN FRONT OF YOU WILL NOT HELP YOU REACH YOUR DESTINATION ANY SOONER. 

Did you know? Riding my you-know-what isn't going to make me drive any faster, and your being a super massive huge jerk isn't going to magically negate all traffic lights and laws. And, contrary to what you may believe, you will NOT receive a trophy for arriving at the traffic light .005 seconds ahead of me.

Y'all need to chill. Save the tailgating for the Quad!
