Lawsuit and/or jail time.

I just let off the gas and slow down then when they try to pass me I stomp on the gas. No need for brake checks.
been said thousands of times, hence why everyone has said they would probably just use washerfluid...

A) no cop would look under the hood of your truck to see if there is oil in your washer res,

B) they would not legally be able to search under the hood of your truck unless they got a warrant (yes i know this for a fact, reasonable cause does not come into play here...)

I think a random hose on the back of your truck with oil dripping from it and the windshield of the car that hit you would be enough for him to search where that line goes to. Also they are cops. You talk as if they follow their own rules.

whippersnapper has a point. ESP. in New Jersey i have yet to meet a cop who doesnt have those Freakin FOP license plates, the FOP stickers all over his car, and drives like a douche. i say a small box of tacks mounted inplaced of a spare with a quick release would fix alot of problems

would you really be dumb enough to have a hose sticking out the back of your truck? it would look like ****... unless you don't have any pride in your vehicle... oh wait, that's right, your a moron and shouldn't be on this site to begin with... nor do you have any pride for your vehicle...

they may not follow the rules, but if they don't, what they find is not admisable in court, so it would do them **** all...

A little compartment ar the end of your tailgate that holds about 20lbs+ of rocks and a trap door. Hooked to an acuator. That way you arent dropping nails and ****ing everyone's day up...the rocks will hit the ground at about 70mph and hopefully some of them will hop up and **** up the *******'s ride...Plus it will add weight to the back to help traction....even if they dont hop up and ding up the car behind you, if someone sees a ****load of rocks falling out of your tailgate, they will back up.

Wow. Someone needs a dose of maturity. Yes I'm a moron because I voice my opinion of stuff and it doesn't match your opinion. Good logic there. Oh and I can be on any site a damn well please thanks.

Anyway all I'm saying is there is no need for any of this. If you have a tailgater then keep your speed if you are at or over the limit. If he is really close then slow down. Jabbing on the brakes will just cause and accident and anyone can say they saw you slam on the brakes for no reason. If you do something else to cause an accident you could be caught. Hell you could make it a lot worse for you. Spray water on the wrong guy and you could end up with a bullet in your head. Too many crazies out there.
