1. Don't follow another car too closely.
2. Especially if that car is a cop.
3. Make sure you have your updated insurance card in your car.
Edited to add a little more explanation: Believe it or not, I was having a very good day. After being sick for 3 days, I finally was over it and felt like a million bucks! I got out the door a little late to meet with the class I teach at a grocery store, and apparently I was too focused on getting there. A cop pulled me over and said I was following him too closely. He told me that is what causes road rage and isn't safe. The sad thing is I didn' t realize I was even following him that close. It was a tough wake up call. I will pay attention better. As far as the insurance card, honestly Jeff always puts the new one in our glove compartment. It has been 7 years since I was last pulled over, so I don't really check for it too often. Doh! Tough lessons to learn.
