Anti-Tailgater device

Well i was thinking about it again this morning on the way to work when i had a guy crawling up my a$$ again couldnt even see his hood. i didnt want to brake check him so this is my idea... Spare Washer Fluid Bottle with strong pump mounted in the bed with tubes either in the top of the tail gate or on the bump angled up. Fill em up and squirt the a$$ holes tail gating me.

Guy at work sugested filling the reservoir up with something hard the remove with wipers such as a thin oil, or brake fluid so they and their paint learn a lesson .


What do you think??

Sounds like you will spray your way into a lawsuit. I just drive normal when I have a tailgater. If they are really bad I'll slow down and I'm make sure to drop it down a gear or two so when they go to pass I'll mash it so they can't pass.

Rear facing HIDs would be cool. Give them a nice burst of the sun for a sec.

Awesome idea... I'd just fill it with water or washer fluid though... my uncle used to have a fire extinguisher filled with water that he'd shoot out the window at people who fly up a lane that's ending... hehe

I like this idea except mine would use gasoline. And next to the mouth of the tubes would be a blowtorch that ignites when the pump operates.

the bigger you are the more scared people are of you in their little cars. just pour water (or anything) out of a bottle when you roll the window down. done it a million times

How many times have I thought about putting paintball guns behind my grille!! but I guess they could work the other way too. But i have road rage issues and would get myself arrested pretty damn fast with any type of weapon on my truck! haha I would go with the squirter out the back but fill it full of really nasty water, or get a dog to pee in it. My tactic is to drive really slow, then walk on it for a few second and slow right down again, then walk on it again, it drives them nuts, and if they try to pass walk on it again. I almost caused an accident like this one day I made some bi#ch so mad she nearly ran someone off the road trying to pass me.
I have also been know to throw random clutter (bottles) at people(cars).

I'd just spray water, or you could be fined for enviro clean up or dumping.

I love screwing with tailgaters if it's safe (safe as in no one besides me and him close-by) to do so. Be it in a car, truck or rig, I make it clear I don't like people close behind me. Most of the time I'll start to drive like I'm 90yrs old and speed back up if they fall back to a safe distance, rarely brake check, or if I feel they're going to rear-end me if I stop I'll let them go by without hassle (half the time to watch them be pulled over 2 miles down the road).

The best - on my daily rig (05' Pete 379 flat-top, C-15, 18-spd, straight piped/straight cut stacks, custom header, tune and turbo), with the way areodynamics play off the back of the cab I can smoke out anything behind me due to the smoke being pulled down without a trailer. Fun for tailgaters and Prius drivers alike!
