Right lane; highway; thick but fast traffic. Merging behind me is the distinctive profile of the Ferrari 360 Modena, a red cabrio. The car is approaching a good clip - fast, but not so fast that I have time to think, “No...is this guy really going to tailgate me in that? Really?”

The Ferrari slows and maintains a perfect following distance behind me. “That’s what I thought”, I said to no one.

A reminder, I think, that while Ferrari owners have a certain douchebag reputation, it’s not really for douchebaggery on the road, as is the case with a certain Bavarian marque. Or am I wrong, and was this driver the exception?
