Re: Ontario's OPP finally admits that....
Rich, get a grip.
There is NO law against taitgaiting. Following to close is what you're
thinking of, but only applicable when there is a crash. It has nothing to
do with speed, and can be issued at 10MPH if the roads are slick.
Just ignore them man... or, better yet, :), get a 5,000lb plus Bronco, like
me, and defy the piece of jap shit or whatever to move you. That's my
favorite when I'm not in the 5.0... just try and move me. Please, try...
