What reason would a vehicle be driving slowly?

This could apply to you if you are:

If you are already driving slowly, pulling over periodically to let other drivers past will not impact on your journey much, but will significantly reduce the frustration experienced if faster drivers are stuck behind you.

If you unreasonably prevent people passing you when they want to, you could be deemed to be holding up traffic unnecessarily and you might be pulled over by the police. Slow driving where it is inconsiderate attracts a $150 fine.
