I've done this before too...actually, I do it almost every time I
drive.  ;-)
Once though a Highway Patrol car zoomed past me when I was doing 80
(traffic was moving about that speed is the only reason I can think of
as to why he didn't pull me over), so I jumped about 5 car lengths
behind him and tailed him.  Its amazing how traffic parts for Highway
Patrol is reminded of Moses.  I made good time doing it
