As I said earlier, I agree with the WildMan. I agree with you 100%. My kudos was geared toward you.

lol, I think they have something better to do with there time, and that way they wanna get home/work/play quicker...
I dont mind tailgaters.... aslong as there not accually riding on my bumper I could care less, hell its there fault automaticly if you tap your brakes/let the cruise go and they rearend you...
I usually like to stay in the slow lane (oncoming po-po wouldnt think that you where speeding as much)
If someones behind me and im passing others then ill take the hint to get into speed up and pass...

I've been tempted in my bigger cars (i.e. '82 Caprice Classic) to slam on my brakes an blame it on a squirrel...

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!
No offense taken Jay. That'* exactly why I left him behind me at 95mph. So he'd stay off my ***. He got the message. I agree with Wildman, anyone who tailgates people is asking to get in an accident, ESPECIALLY at 85-95mph (and less than 10 feet behind me).

But I agree 100% if someone is going slower then the speed limit, especially in the fast lane, they should get out of the way of others. Because if someone is going slower than the speed limit (like 25 in a 40 for example) I personally will ride their *** a little to get them to speed up or get out of the way. But I would NEVER tailgate someone at 90mph.

Quote:
Yea, you pissed him off good. I hope he wasn't trying to get his girlfiriend or whatever to the hospital.
He flipped me off because I showed him up and because I wouldn't let him by me when he was on my *** going 90mph. If he needed to take his girlfriend to the hospital he would have done anything to get by me. He at least would have been panicy and would have been flashing his lights and honking his horn at least. But he was calm as he was on my ***, looking straight ahead, etc.

(Plus we were about 75 miles away from the nearest possible hospital, and were going the opposite way of any hospitals as well )

If anyone was honking their horn and/or had their lights flashing I'd assume they had a better reason to be on my *** besides just being stupid, so I would let him by. This guy was just being an ***. And when people see my license plate they seem to be 'provoked' into trying to ride me and pass me more than usual...maybe not all the time, but I know people feel provoked when they see "SSEEEYAA," who wouldn't? If I saw another car with a similar plate I'd proceed to play around and pass or race it.

Quote:
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.
I TOTALLY agree with you. But I didn't say we were racing though. I just told of this idiot riding my a$$ at high speeds and he flipped me off when he failed at passing me. If we were really racing each other the outcome would have been the same.

lol, id say you shouldnt be in the fast lane unless your going over 8% of the speed limit or theres a Way slower person in the slow lane.
I got pulled over by a cop because I passed him in the slow lane... But the cop was only going speedlimit in the fast lane... (basicly the cop was holding back traffic) me and the traffic and the cop all stopped... The cop was pressured and I just drove away.
