Did no one ever think to follow Batman?

Seriously, he arrives by car in the big city, then does whatever he does there (whatever that is), then leaves by car and drives out to the country.  He would get stuck in traffic, be seen driving, leaving the highway, etc.

It wouldn't be tough to find him, yet people never seem to think of this.

Discus.

The Batmobile was very fast.  It can't be tailed very easily.

Don't question the plot of Superhero stories.  ;)

As much as Batman tries to protect the secret of his Batcave, the security has failed many times and supervillains have gotten inside. When that happens, it’s always a disaster. That’s because the Batcave is where Batman lets his guard down, literally and figuratively. It’s where he takes off his costume and his mask, stitches up his wounds and (most dangerously) heads up into Wayne Manor. It’s also where he keeps his costume and equipment. Anyone who gets into the Batcave can destroy all his stuff, and enter his private home.

One of the most high-profile Batcave invasions came in 1993’s “Knightfall,” where his archenemy Bane arranged to free all the criminals in Arkham Asylum. Batman exhausted himself trying to round them all up, and came home to find Bane standing in Wayne Manor. It turned out he had figured out Batman’s true identity and trashed Batman and the Batcave. He’s not alone, though, as the cave has also been invaded by the Joker and the Court of Owls.

When trouble strikes, you never know where and when it will be. It was after Bane’s attack in the “Knightfall” storyline that Batman decided to take precautions. Although there’s really only one place that qualifies as the Batcave, there are other places scattered around Gotham City that Batman uses as “satellite” Batcaves where he keeps emergency equipment.

Most of the other “Batcaves” aren’t really caves, but secluded areas. Usually they’re on property owned by Wayne Enterprises. For instance, there’s a bunker hidden underneath the Wayne Foundation building. There are also satellite caves on abandoned property, like the cavern hidden in a four-block stretch of tracks in the Old Gotham prototype subway station, forgotten after it had been sealed in 1896. The satellite caves really came into use during the 1999 “No Man’s Land” storyline, where an earthquake devastated Gotham City. Some of his satellite Batcaves have also been used by Dick Grayson and Batgirl in emergencies or headquarters of their own.

He wouldn't break the law by speeding or endangering the ordinary citizens.  Plus, traffic is bad, so he would be stuck a bunch, and people would see when he gets off the highway.  He would also be noticed going into the grocery store and getting gas for the thing, etc. 

I am talking the television series batman, btw, the real batman.
