Three white lights following me on my way home from work at night...

I was driving to pick up my daughter after work at night. She stays very close to the airport, so I am completely used to seeing airplanes flying close overhead and am quite familiar with what an airplane looks like, how they fly, how fast, etc. I was driving along a road called Airport Dr. where planes normally fly over the road to land on the landing strip nearby.

I saw what at first I assumed to be a plane about to land considering it was quite low to the ground. At first I was worried, because although it still had a good stretch to go before landing, it was lower to the ground than the planes I normally see preparing to land. I watched it as I drove along, waiting for it to fly overhead to it's assumed destination (the landing strip). However, it never flew overhead. There were still a couple other cars on the road at that time. Then as I continued to drive, eventually I was alone on the roadway, which is when I began to panic, because that's when I realized that the craft seemed to be following me (although not completely obviously). It was dark, so I couldn't see anything but it's lights, which where 3 white lights in what looked like a triangular formation. I started to freak out when I realized that the way it was flying was not anything a plane could be capable of. It was following alongside the road, too close overhead to be a plane but not close enough to get a really good look. It was also slightly behind me and to the left, so I had to keep turning my head back to see it, than to the road again. I turned on to Marine Dr. where it continued to follow me. At this point, I was scared ((deleted)) and going at least 20-30 mph over the speed limit, nearly vearing off the road several times.

Finally after what seemed like forever, but considering the distance I will guess was probably around 5 minutes or less, the lights/craft seemed to separate slighty as it sped off very quickly. As it did this I noticed at least one, possibly more, red light(s) as a glanced as it sped off.

Basically the most frightening experience I have ever had, and I never want anything like that to happen to me ever again.
