One of the really neat things about the game is the way movement order changes every turn, but in a deterministic manner you can plan around. You have to pay real attention to who's moving after you, and who moved before you.

In simulationist terms, your speed is far less important to your move order than your "initiative". There's a good realist argument to be made there, as well as an interesting possibility for a more variable initiative rule [though the box set's simple rotation is definitely a better default for a current mass-market game than Battletech-style initiative, let alone B5Wars-style initiative!].

But yeah, don't stop a few car lengths in front of someone who hasn't moved yet. :)
