The Prius does seem to be emerging as the "car you don't want to be stuck behind"---a title we once reserved for aging drivers in full size Cadillacs.
I have yet to experience that treat, but my hope springs eternal. Maybe it's just me fooling myself by "selective validation"---that is, I think Prius drivers are slugs, so I only notice the slow ones, not the speedy ones?
In any event, I have this gut level reaction, perhaps irrational, to immediately get ahead of any Prius in front of me before I'm trapped on a two lane, double yellow line road. I used to have this same reaction behind VW buses.
On freeways, not so much, because if you park in the left lane, peer pressure will annihilate you in short order in California.
Must be a UA incident.Not having a commute, I never see that stuff. When I usually notice a Prius, it's blowing by me on the Interstate at 85 mph.
The pope is a curbstoner? Who knew?
I can't quite see from the photo, but those look like 10 horsepower stripes---if I had a tape measure and the car in front of me, I could verify that. They could even be the wider"turbo stripes", which, after a few beers, can boost your dyno readings well over 500.
