Tailgate Caution
Posted in Advice
Forenoon watch, 4 bells (10:17 am)

I just want to make a public announcement here. If you want to tailgate me when I'm going over the speed limit and faster than the flow of traffic, I will become your worst nightmare.

On my way to work a lady in a blue SUV was tailgating me—to the point where I couldn't see her headlights behind me, she was way too close. I was doing around 52 in a 45 mph zone. She started doing this after we were both stopped at a red light. Since she didn't back off, I slowed down until the ripped around to pass me, then I began pacing the car in front of her. She ended up moving back behind me because she had to be in that lane shortly (at least that's what I figure). Anyway, I stuck her good, and would do so again in a heartbeat. This is where I get the most joy out of driving.

So to reiterate, don't be an ass to me, and I won't ruin your day.
