My car has been treated to a ceramic coating making cleaning very easy.

I used to use that driving technique back when I was a yung-dum-fuk to save gas. I was in the Navy and drove between San Diego and Cocoa Beach. I would get right on the ass of a semi and have them drag me across the country. Got incredible gas mileage in my '74 Celica. That is until the day the rear tire exploded within inches of my car. Big chunks of tire smashed against my windshield. Scared the shit out of me.
Haven't used that technique since.
