Hoosiers have a driving habit that is driving me crazy. Frequently I will see someone hold back a car length—or even two—while waiting at a traffic light. Clearly, someone has told these people that this is a good idea, but for the life of me I can't figure out a benefit to it.
I took this picture on the way home from work today, while waiting at a light.
No one ever did this for the thirty years I lived in Florida. Can anyone explain this driving strategy?
Update: Oh yeah. Today's Wednesday. But it's felt like Monday all day, so this counts.
