When I was on my way home from work today, it was a normal afternoon as usual. Remind you I always drive normal and try my best to not have a led foot. Of course a lot of modern cars nowadays ride so comfortably you tend to forget to look at your speedometer.

Anyways back to the point, I was just cruising when all of a sudden this blue Nissan came out of nowhere probably doing at least 80 mph. I mean this vehicle was up on my bumper to the point where their headlights were in my back window. Since the vehicle I was driving I always take good care of it, I didn't do any abrupt maneuvers like "brake-checking" or anything like that since that would be reckless of me. So, I just drove normally until the vehicle finally backed off.

It is usually a more serious offense than careless driving, improper driving, or driving without due care and attention.
