Yeah!!  Sometimes 75 in a 65 isn't fast enough fast enough for *me* either,
and I would appretiate it if people like you would just move over!  You have
no idea what's on someone's mind in this situation.  The tailgater could be

HUMMER!!) Move over, let him/me pass and everyone will be happy with no
