Dear whoever was in a Ford Excessive behind me last night,
When the roads are snowy, and that little Miata 2 feet in front of your bumper is waggling its tail around under acceleration, that's a hint that maybe, just maybe, you might want to give it a little more space. Although I realize that a Miata is nothing more than a speed bump as far as you're concerned, despite its snow tires, its lack of all wheel drive prevents it from accelerating as well as you. Not to worry, it's not unsafe - I'm sure that in the hands of a skilled driver it will run circles around you, who are obviously not very skilled at all to be stupid enough to follow so closely.

(Great RWD trick - when it's snowy, and a car is tailgating you - unfortunately SUVs are too tall to notice this - spin your wheels and throw crap all over the car in back of you. If they don't want crap sprayed all over their car, they shouldn't follow you so closely in the snow.
