I’m talking to tailgaters

Are you listening? You know who you are. We’re not in the big city and don’t have a lot of traffic. Heck, we only have two traffic lights in the Pontiac. Why we have to live with tailgaters on a regular basis is beyond me.

There’s 39 km of Highway 301 between Kazabazua and Otter Lake and somehow, with only one or two other vehicles on the road, there are still tailgaters. There’s maybe four or five places to legally pass another vehicle, and you have to drop to 50 in Danford Lake and Otter Lake, but people will still tailgate.
Why? They’re not gonna get home any faster. There’s nothing more unnerving when, at any minute, a deer or other animal can come running out of the forest when a vehicle is sitting on your derrière. I’d hate to be rear-ended when facing the choice of colliding with a deer.
Think about it, please, and back off my bumper!
