So, when I turn onto the main road, why do cars want to speed up on my bumper? I have a Chevy Avalanche. If I stop abruptly, your little car or little crossover will go right under my bumper. It will mess your vehicle up, not mine. Oh, did I mention that I have super swamper tires too? LOL! They are coming from a stop sign. I have time to turn. It is not like I am cutting them off or anything. They stay close to me onto the highway even. Little do they know, I am not getting onto the highway but staying on the service road and turning off. Then they want to speed past me, flip me off, or honk at me. It is a service road dummy. I don’t have to go highway speeds. Get right onto the highway instead of going down the service road to pass others. You should have left yesterday then!!
