Maybe I'm mispercieving this, but lately, I've noticed that cars will purposely speed up to tailgate me and many times honk, when otherwise, they would be going at the same speed as me.
My ride to work is on a residential, narrow, two lane street with many intersections. Posted speed limit 30mph, but because of the narrowness of the street and intersecting traffic, cars will go a little slower than the speed limit. I've verified this while driving.
I've also noticed that when there are one or two cars in front of me, that don't see me behind them, the cars are in no hurry and I can usually easily keep up with them.
Now, when I go that same speed with no cars in front of me, invariably I will hear someone revving their car hard, and then tailgate me.
Anyone have a similar experience?
