I think it depends how fast you're going - there is no way that some of these idiots are going to avoid hitting you if you have to do something drastic from 85 to stop - have you ever watched in the rear-view some of these folks who are driving so close? I'd say 33% are cursing you and want you out of their way - I will often oblige them - another 33% seem to be oblivious to the world, while the remainder are seemingly paying attention, but just see nothing wrong with being that close (probably think their reaction speeds are better than mine... and of those 34% - I reckon maybe, MAYBE 10-15% might be faster than me)....
