n/a white bonne is on a distinguished road
Default tailgaters

So Im on the highway the other day heading into Edmonton, and there is the semi in the right hand lane, and in the passing lane there is a van going about 1 km/h faster than the semi, so im getting pissed, because the passing lane in called a passing lane for a reason,not a limber lane. Then this *** in a dodge truck pulls up behind me, and i cant even see his bumper in my rear veiw, so I back off a lillte to try to get him to take a hint and he doesnt. So i told my two friends to hold on and i danced on the old bonnes brakes, and then turned arround and gave him a thumbs up with my middle finger. Needless to say he got the hint. I hate tailgaters. What do you think of tailgaters.

I brake check them.....only if they're really close.

And also only if I know that I can floor it fast enough to make up the speed difference if they don't hit the breaks.

I've come to a complete stop before on the interestate because of some ***.....I got out flipped him off asked him what his problem was got back in and tore off..


That was the best by far lol.

Problem is, if they hit you, you could be at fault. They usually screw the person that has to stop fast. That'* why I just slow down to barely a crawl, I don't take the chance. Kinda like that guy with white hair you always get stuck behind when you're in a hurry to get somewhere...

I'm a big fan of the brake check, but really **** me off and I down shift so I slow down and you don't get to see brake lights go on, I dare you to hit me.

That'* one thing I like about Ohio. If someone hits you from behind, they are at fault, no questions asked.
I've only ever heard of one person getting out of rear-ending someone without being found at fault, and he had to have five witnesses sign statements that the other guy did a swoop-and-squat on him.

That'* why I like it when I see a car coming up fast in the left lane while I'm in the right. I'll simply change lanes to the left and go the same exact speed as the car next to me, that slows them down PDQ
