One thing I can not stand is people who are terrible drivers. They do not follow traffic rules or have any common sense. On thing that really makes me angry is when someone is tailgating me. They are right behind be, without even one car length of room in between us. One night on my way home this woman is right behind me, tailgating me. Here is what I do when someone does this:
First, I make sure that I am not going too slow. If I am under the speed limit by 5mph, they have all the right to tailgate me. If I am going at least the speed limit, then this is where the problem arises. Second, if I am indeed driving at least the posted speed limit, and someone is riding my tail, I will ease up on the gas pedal and purposely drive five to ten miles per hour below the speed limit, just to piss them off. It is especially fun if we are in a no passing zone like approaching an off-ramp to an exit or a two-way road when cars are coming the other direction. Lastly, I wave at them as they speed by me once they get the chance.
Just a couple of nights ago I had to do this to some lady who was tailgating me. I was going the speed limit when she decides to ride the bumper of my truck. I’m thinking “Oh you should not be doing that!” I slowed way down. She had no room to pass me for a couple of miles. We were getting on Interstate 69 and moving towards 469. I was going slow the whole way, especially on the on-ramp to Interstate 469. Once she got the chance to pass me, she swerved over, hit the gas, and flicked me off. HA! I just laughed and waved. I should have been the one flicking her off! But I like to have fun instead.
That is just another thing besides people not having their headlights on that bothers me. You can read about my rant about that here.
