Default tailgateing deterent

i just though of a way to keep people form tailgateing you with their brites on, just hook your back up lights to a seperate switch with a seperate power feed(or put some really bright fogs in back) and lthen turn them on when someones behind you (i know, it sounds stupid, and is probably against the law in most states, but it would be fun to try) , let me know what you think...its only fair, they blind you, so blind them right back

I like to let them pass me, then give them a taste of their own medicine.

If thats not an option...one word: Brakecheck...or is that two words?

yeah i thought about the for lights in back...i was thinking ..or brinstorming really about replacing the reflector in the rear bumper with a fog light, lol

but at the same time, that would be kinda low and maybe not blinding...but if it was up next to the 3rd brake light

The other day some lady was tailgating me all the way down a road. (funny part was that it was an older lady) After while we both turned onto a 2 lane highway and she was next to me at a stoplight and we were both first. I turned around and looked at her and waved at her. I was dying inside, because I knew she was mad because I could see her yelling in my rear view earlier. Anyway she had the wierdeist look on her face and then she waved back. lol Then once the light turned green I left her in the dust and she got behind me and wouldn't pass or anything

It was funny, you had to be there because even my mom was laughing because she was with me.

I loved off road lights in the Jeep. someone would always flash their lights at me (oncoming) so i would flash my high beams to say "dumbass, they're not on!" then they would just turn on their high beams to be an idoit so i would do the same and top them with my off road lights . Worked EVERY time.

I prefer to down shift so no brakelights come on, and as long as you don't leave any skid marks they can't prove you slowed down. Nad when it comes to my car I really don't care if they hit it.
