My favorite thing of all time was a guy tail gating an unmarked cop on a two way one lane per side divided by a barrier in the middle... Well they were going and all of a sudden the cop jams on his breaks and lights up like a christmas tree and you can see the guy just about $H!T himself... It was awesome...

I like the flames

Also i pissed a guy off in a hybrid today to the point he was yelling out the window at me... I think he was mad cause i have acceleration and can smoke the tires as i floored it past him coming out of a drive way.. I smiled and waved when he pulled up next to me yelling then i gave her some gas and took off down the interstate... It was awesome

We had our first snowfall this year, and on the way to work had some woman driving right up my a$$. I was brake checking her for a while, didnt work. Sped up and slowed down over again, when it got to 2 lanes again she pulled into out to pass me just as we pulled up on a slow moving car so I pulled up along him an started crawling along at his pace, then slower so she pulled into his lane, then sped up ahead of him again. By this time she was absolutely livid and nearly wiped the other guy out trying to get around him so I let her pass before she killed someone. And then nearly hit a cab as she sped off ahead of us. She was in some rush to get somewhere!! haha and knowing that I made her even later made me happy! haha

i did that to a guy last winter on a snow covered road in my truck he ended up in the ditch and couldnt get out so i turned around drove past gave him the finger turned around again and went home lol.


I usually use the brake check no matter what im in if they rear end me they are going to pay for it so......

thats mean. sounds like something a teenager would do.

I just drive along on cruise. strobes usually scare them enough they a) pull over or b) back way off ---much easier

One of our delivery guys carries a small bag of white rice with him.
Anyone tails him too close for too long gets a handful tossed out the driver's window.
Pretty effective for getting them to back off.

I always wanted to design a small hopper under the truck that would hold sand.
Push a button on the dash and sand starts dropping out from under your truck.
Just like a steam locomotive has sanders that drop sand on the rails for traction.

Get back on the interstate

And quit yer honkin’ at me that way"

When I had my sub in, I'd just crank my music and relax... who cares about what's behind me?

Nowadays... I just usually wave a glass bottle out the window and start swerving. Works wonders.

If someone is tailgating you you need to get out of the way or speed up, as long as it isn't someone or something elses fault in front of you that is making you go slow. You aren't a cop. You can't tell me how fast I can go and try and enforce it just because you think the speed you are doing is good doesn't mean I have to think the same. If someone is tailgating you, GTFO of the way.

1 lane each way, i'm doing the speed limit and your tail gating me, i'm gonna slam on my brakes as hard as i can and hope to god you hit me... tailgating is illegal, so don't go saying that i should change what i'm doing because you want to be a douche

Lol I don't see why you guys get your panties in a bunch over something so stupid. I just continue driving how I was driving, they'll go away eventually.

On the internet you do all this talk about slamming on your brakes, yet I bet you've never done it to someone not even once. I will continue to say it, GTFO of the way or speed up.

thats usually my method of attack... i feel a little bad when i mash on it so they cant get back in.. but hell its there fault for tailgating in the first place...

i used to get really peeved when i had people tailgating me.. now ive relaxed a little bit.. theres so many deuchebags behind the wheel out there..just gotta relax and do your own pace.. dont worry about how fast everyone else is going!
