The Won’t Pull Forward Clover

clover2

Here’s a Clover who won’t pull forward: Clover left more than a full car length between herself and the car ahead. This artifically extends traffic logjams and also means some people won’t make it to – or through – a green light because they’re stuck behind a Clover who for reasons of myopia or otherwise…

BMW Clover

EPautoslogo

Rolled up behind a BMW Clover the other day. Despite his “ultimate driving machine,” this “driver” apparently fears driving the speed limit – or even within 5 MPH of the speed limit: Which boggles me. I mean, why bother? Why buy a BMW? Or any vehicle with similar power/capability? Is there anything more absurd than…

Scooter Clover

Actually, it’s the Clover behind the scooter. The scooter can’t help that it’s slow. Its rider is given’ ‘er all she’s got, cap’n! But the SUV behind the Clover – ahead of me – is 180 proof. The scooter outran the Clover. Ramping up to the impossible speed of 45 in a 55… too speedy…

Time Bandit Clover

Here’s a Clover encounter of the second kind – the Clover who likes to take his time… and yours, too: First, the Clover comes to a complete and extended stop at a stop sign even when it’s abundantly clear there’s no traffic coming. The video begins with him eventually creeping forward. After having stopped for…

Fuuhhhhhhhtttball Clover

Here’s a fuhhhhhhhhhttttttball Clover. Guy in a truck doing 36 in 45, braking abruptly for no apparent reason: The back of his vehicle was festooned with two huge oversize representations of his favorite team – which everyone stuck behind him is forced to view. Fuuuuuhhhhhttttball worship and Cloverism are tandem sicknesses that derive from the…

Blocking Clover

dancing Clover

This Clover – a fuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhttttball fan – squatted in the left (the passing) lane, exactly matching the speed of the car to its right. It would neither speed up nor slow down, creating a rolling roadblock and making it impossible for anyone to get by:  These people are like chunks of fat in your arteries.…

Old Coot Clover

dancing Clover

I went out for  ride today… and found myself behind a Clover. Actually, several people were caught behind this Clover. A wizened old coot in a silver Taurus held up about half a dozen cars. I was eventually able to pass the old bag: Notice that even when the road widens and becomes a two lane –…

Airstream Clover

Ah, the Airstream Clover… aka the RV Clover. This is the Clover who loves to drive an oversized, underpowered house on wheels that struggles to keep moving on the mildest incline. If the rig can’t move faster, that’s forgivable. What’s not is when Clover won’t pull off (or over) at the first opportunity to let the cars jammed…
