I am heartened to read this.

Your stock just went up in my book.

Anyone can potentially be a rabbit, even if they are driving the PSL by following some simple rules.

When driving with no traffic on the road, keep it to less than 10over PSL if you are not familiar with the surroundings!

When driving with traffic, select a vehicle in front approx 1/4 mile and start to close the gap at 5 over average traffic flow.

Once approaching said vehicle, determine if there is another vehicle ahead within 1/4 mile.

If yes, continue to close the new gap at 5 over average traffic flow.
If no vehicle within 1/4 mile, proceed at 5-10 over PSL until you eventually encounter another vehicle in front and then you can choose to adjust your speed accordingly to close the gap then repeat the steps outlined above.

The theory being that an officer may target a vehicle coming around a bend or over a slight crest even if they are not speeding, if so and if you have a good radar detector, you will get advanced warning as a result of the vehicle in front. You are not putting the rabbit at any more risk than if you were at home in your PJ's.

Mind you that if the traffic flow is normally going 10 over PSL most of the time so adding 5 to this does not make you stand out like a sore thumb and basically puts you reasonably safe at 10-15 over PSL

A rabbit does not have to speed to be helpful, however if a rabbit is already doing 20-25 over PSL, find your groove, sit back and let him lead.

I always use a rabbit when I can find them, but alas they rarely want to go as fast as I do.

Occasionally you can Jedi mind trick someone into being your rabbit. This is done when you pass someone going slower than you and they use you for a rabbit. After a few miles you slow and the weak have become addicted to that speed and pass you to become the rabbit.
