It's not as good as my favorite, but close.
When people "tailgate" me, I like to slow down, really slow... until I get to a dashed line, then I speed up so they can't pass until we get back to
the double yellow line and slow down again. I figure if they're gonna ride my bumper, they're gonna ride it slow
Just for the record, if they stay at a safe following distance, I will speed up for them, then ease off when we get to a passing zone so they can get
by, it's only the tailgaters I do that to.
I know it's terrible, but I do this as well, and find it hilarious. I know it's really not good to make matters worse, but nothing makes me angrier
than someone riding your ass. There is a safe distance to keep when driving your car. When people ride your ass, it's them endangering my life, the
life of anyone in my vehicle, as well as theirs, and anyone around them that could be affected. It really bothers me that they have such little
Soooooo, I slow down. I'll slow down bad. I'll go 20 in a 30mph road. If they continue to ride, I'll go slower. Thankfully lately, most people get
the hint, and back up. Once backed up, I quickly speed back up to the limit, and go on our merry way. Sometimes people get pretty pissy, though.
My g/f was driving us somewhere in Fort Collins(can't remember where we were going), and some bald jerk in glasses started riding our ass. So she got
mad, and started slowing down. The guy wouldn't stop riding, even got closer. After a few moments he sped up, and just drove through the bike lane,
rolled his window down, and called me a bunch of racial insults because I'm hispanic. I just waved at him, and laughed, because my g/f was the one
driving, and she's white. lol
