One day, after twelve long hours, the man started his journey back home. It was late at night and he had to drive down a narrow, poorly lit, one-way road through the countryside. The road had many had lots of twists and turns, and there was a risk that deer would suddenly jump onto the road. He had to be extra cautious while driving.

To ensure everyone stayed safe, the road had a speed limit of 55 miles per hour (mph). “Almost everyone goes 65, but I had noticed cops cracking down on people speeding on that road, so I stopped pushing the speed li”it so much,” he said. The man also recalled how this particular night was pitch dark, making driving even harder.

Since he knew he had to follow the speed limit he set put his cruise control . In these tricky conditions, he wasn’t taking any chances with hitting a deer or getting a ticket. As he was driving along he noticed another car coming up fast behind him.

This car started flashing its lights like it wanted to pass. But the road had no extra lane to use and there wasn’t other traffic around. The tailgater could have easily overtaken the man.

The tailgater was rude and kept indicating to overtake but they didn’t. So the man decided to play a little trick on the driver. He slowed way down, set his cruise control to exactly 55 mph, and decided to ignore the aggressive driver. He thought, “If you want to tailgate me like this, then what happens next is your problem.”

The two cars reached a section where overtaking was not allowed. For some strange reason known only to the impatient driver, they suddenly swerved out, hit the gas, and tried to pass the man.

Before the speeder was even out of sight, he noticed another vehicle coming from behind. But this one had flashing lights and a blaring siren. It was a police car in hot pursuit.
