Awesome. Yeah, those Blazers are jokes. I remember when they used to be real vehicles, prolly around the same year that Unique is speaking of. Then, all of a sudden, the bottom dropped out... ...

Goodluck with that Will.

I think it'* possible, but not really a good idea. You do still have to get up in the morning.

You wanted to go 70. Maybe he wanted to go 80. Maybe he had a good reason to need to be going faster than you. No offense dude, but when peeps hang me me up like that I get real pissed. If you did that to me and I was in my dad'* 4X4, I would have played bumper tag with you until you were upside down in a f'n ditch!

If someone is riding my ***, I usually let them by...I try not to take the little things personally.

Yea, you pissed him off good. I hope he wasn't trying to get his girlfiriend or whatever to the hospital.

A car revving at a light wants to race, worthy or not, he can get what he has coming to him. That is the time to hand him his ***.

My whole point with this is that a race is only a race when both participants think it is a race. Somebody "ridin your ***" is not looking for a race. Now if he backed off to sit next to you and look you over, that is different. I don't think this guy knew you from Adam, or cared less. You were in his way and he road up on you. He wanted nothing more than to keep going up the road.

IMHO, there is never a good reason to tailgate, especially at those speeds. It is extremely dangerous, irresponsible, and assinine...

Sorry, but I agree with the WildMan.

If it'* a residential road and someone is tailgating me, I will slow down to the speed limit or slower. There is no excuse for being right up at someone'* back bumper in a school zone, that'* just not cool. Residential tailgaters need to find something better to do with their time.

However, if you are being tailgated in the passing lane on a highway (and you can move over), let the person by you. After all, the passing lane is for passing, not cruising. I hate it when people won't move over for me because they think that they are going fast enough. Like, when there is no one else around but this person just needs to drive in the passing lane and won't move over because they expect you to go around them. It I want to get a speeding ticket on the highway, that'* my business. And, if you just finished passing someone and the middle lane is free, get back in it.

Slow drivers in the passing lane cause more accidents than the fast ones. Why? Because everyone else does stupid things to get around the slow-poke. If you want to go slowly on the freeway, stay in the collector lanes.

Please excuse the rant but I have done the Toronto to Ottawa stretch on the 401 far too much lately and people not knowing how to drive can seem to make a peaceful, scenic drive a living hell.

Not to embarrass you or anything, but Jstpsntym said that. The only thing I said was:

I totally agree with you. I guess I got too busy ranting about the other stuff to make this obvious point also.
