The Two Second Rule

Update January 30, 2009:  I was driving my daughter to look at laptop computers this evening.  It is around 20 degrees here , the roads were slushy, and there were frequent periods of heavy snow fall.  As we traveled along an Interstate toll road, I had to get into the left lane to pass through single lane EZPass (I love EZPass).  Sure enough a car pulled within two car lengths of my rear.  Due to the weather, I was only traveling at 50 mph.  The unique thing about this fairly common occurrence was that the car tailgating me was a state police car.  As soon as we passed through the lane, I moved to the right lane and was quickly passed by the officer.  We noticed as he passed us that he was on his cell phone.  Remember my comments about the weather.  Sigh.
