    Now if the cops would just use it on 4 wheelers for unsafe following, and unsafe passing! Lots more ticket revenue waiting there.

    Looks like the 4 wheeler driver is oblivious to the giant grill behind them.

    Drinking coffee as if nothing is there.

    Hahaha !! Seems to be common practice these days. People driving unaware of anything going on around them

    I generally prescribe a healthy Air-Horn Therapy session for this disorder. I think it must work, most patients seem satisfied because they signal that I'm #1.

    If I'm the one in that 4-wheeler, the air horn buys you an extra 10 miles per hour of speed reduction, on top of what you get for tailgating.

    Speed reduction is accomplished solely by releasing the throttle.

    If I am to mitigate any hazard out in front while I have a reckless driver tailgating in the rear, the only way to feasibly accomplish that without getting hit is to pre-empt it by slowing down without waiting for any signs of a problem.

    And yes, you are more than welcome to release the dash cam footage that shows you get "brake-checked" by a car after you do all the approaching. I have no doubt that Youtube legal analysis would assure you of a stunningly favorable verdict.

    Well any trucker that tailgates i have no sympathy for whatever happens to him.. That is not what we are talking about right here. We are talking about people that drive without any awareness about whats going on around them, which is what my original comment was about and @Cattleman84 's reply to my comment was about.
     
    Cattleman84 Thanks this.
