    Couple of Clovers

    Had to pass two of them yesterday. Both doing 40-ish in a 55, with the second car tailgating the lead car. But the second Clover would not pass the first Clover.

    So I passed them both!

Our definition of a clover is a pea brained driver who practices unnecessary breaking and swerving, causes traffic delays driving below the normal speed of traffic and continues to block traffic around him, oblivious (intentionally or not) to everyone around him or her. While it has been heard that the green clover is being driven to extinction by pollination decline, the four-wheeled maggot variety continues to infest our highways in ever greater numbers in all types of vehicular dress from foreign made economy compacts and mid sized sedans to SUV's and high performance sedans and the occasional sports car. We need to document the actions of the four-wheeled clover in order to remove this menace from our highways. The Daily Clover is the first step in this ongoing process.

    Because of the "Graying of America" we are likely to see an ever increasing number of clovers, unfortunately.

    Well, yes. Older people on the average do drive a bit slower, but age is not a primary indicator of a clover. Clovers can be anywhere from 16 to 106. In the middle 80's, when I had been on the road a few years, I noticed a lot of clovers in my age bracket. I found it amazing. People in their 20's and 30's driving like grandma. I realized that it was the 55 mph speed limit caused this whole phenomenon. On the highways, things began to improve a little after the relaxation to 65 mph on rural interstates, but the problem was still prevalent. The reason that clovers pose such a problem is because of the sheer number of vehciles on the road. I contend that clovers comprise the same percentage of vehicles as they did 25 years ago. The only difference is that they cause more problems for a greater number of drivers since there are about 2x as many cars on the same roads that were around 40 years ago.

    That's awful. You actually likely passed a clover and a sheep, not two clovers. It is important to notice the difference!
