Pronounced winn-ding: In bicycle racing, following others to avoid using as much energy to push against the air in front of you as you would otherwise have to use. As used in the context of speeding cars, it is characterized by following cars which are also speeding, or having them follow you. This allows a series of warning systems and also safety barriers by having other cars for the police to stop in case the train doesn't spot a prowling police car. Depending on the number of cars in a winding train you can be almost completely sure of not getting a ticket for speeding. : D
