Don’t Tailgate, I Brake For Tailgaters [PHOTO]
Of all of the stupid driving behavior I encounter the one thing people do that makes me want to got on a Scarface-style rampage is people who tailgate me. It happened this morning on my way to the station driving down the Racetrack (I-229). I am driving all alone at 5am except for one other driver that didn’t want to pass me, but was able to get close enough to the rear bumper of my truck they could have opened the tailgate.
I wish I had unlimited funds to do what the guy in this photo I found on Reddit wrote on his bumper.
It’s an epidemic! Look at the tweets I found in one quick search on Twitter.
Drove to Chesham at 20mph (went past my road), adding 15 minutes to my drive, just to piss off a tailgater. I need help

just deliberately slowed my car to a crawl in front of a very persistent tailgater on the way to eat.

Imagine if while driving, cars had electronic reputation meters with words like “ROAD RAGE” “Tailgater” or “Considerate!” above them.
