Maureen: Keeping Up w/Slow Drivers

In the Coeur d'Alene Press, reporter Maureen Dolan columnizes about slow drivers, after following an elderly driver going 10 miles under the posted speed limit:

I wonder how many times someone has gone through this sort of mental exercise while driving behind me on Fourth Street through Dalton Gardens. I'm a stickler for driving the speed limit there. I travel that road at least once every day and I see the sheriff's deputies writing tickets with the lights flashing as a miserable-looking driver waits in the car. Even more than not wanting to mar my driving record, I don't want to be that woman, the one everyone drives by and feels disappointed in or sorry for, because she got caught.

Question: Are you patient with slow drivers?
