Tailgating me in a 50 zone, did a check of my speed, sitting just over 50... So I pull over to the left (kept my speed ~ the same), wave the guy behind to go past.. He elects not to overtake, so I stay infront, and he continues to tailgate...
Man I love Australian drivers!!!

Slow down, it's much more satisfactory.

Lol - Hardly, it's more of a troll mentality. I love looking at the face of the tailgater gradually getting more angry.

****ed up from what? What is an un****ed Australian road?

And the accident would by paid for by the insurance company of the at-fault driver. Besides there are no such thing as accidents, only people being stupid/ignorant/clueless and doing something wrong which causes a collision.

^^ you said it yourself in the last part..
Why would you play games on the road?

You see it alot of the FWY.. I dont see the point of slowing to 90 in the RHL just because the guy behind wants to go 110 -120?


Anyway, it seems im the odd one out these days, and common courtesy on the road is 'old fashioned' ?

What if they actually hit you? Do you really want an accident?

If they actually hit me, then I'll be a total c**t through the whole process.

By lightly tap, I mean so that the brake lights come on without actually braking. Same as turning the headlights on a for a second, looks like brake lights from behind. Anyone stupid enough not to back off when they think the person in front is hitting their brakes shouldn't be on the road.

As for slowing down, I do that around town, never on highways or freeways. Taking your foot off and dropping 5kms is all it takes. When I've done this, they either back off and look absolutely ropable until they turn or can get past, or they speed up to get around and get booked. I'd call that satisfying.

^^lol at these pix

i also slow down around town (when going less than 60) to infuriate tailgaters, as long as I'm in the slow lane. if the don't back of i will continue to slow down. courtesy is also not being on someones ass. on the freeway, never. higher speed = dangerous

as for flicking lights on and off. i like that, except my lights are always on...........
