I spent five years driving instructing. Although I could out-drive any other person, those seriously stupid and arrogant people who tailgated my students when they were going the speed limit made every day of my five years living hell. Students who should not speed up would try to listen to the 'communication' of the tailgater and out of fear start missing other important things. It was like always having a person with a baseball bat swinging it right behind my head - all day long. And these fools behind us were just arrogant rich people who never knew any limits. They caused terror and continue to ruin life for us all. More people die from tailgaters than will ever die from terrorism or sharks. More fear, manipulation, and being bullied into also speeding, and subsequent mistakes, coersion, and horror/terror is caused by tailgaters than all the other crap we get all worked up about that really doesn't affect our lives on a daily basis for most of us. Tailgating is an expression of what is worst about our bullying intimidating thoughtless sociopathic society when it is at it's worst. What is sometimes best about it is that we try to move to the right and let people get to where they are trying to go, harried, and busy, even when they are clearly willing to threaten our lives and to put us in real danger just to get what they want. We are usually into minding our own business and understanding live and let live. I have a solution that should work for everyone...
