Why do you tailgate?

C'mon lets be honest now. You were the one following me on the highway last night. Is there any reason you tailgaters climb up peoples a**? It's dangerous, and I won't be sympathetic when you end up in a ditch somewhere. But why do you do it? You end up being like 4 seconds ahead of me. AHHHHH! Drives me nuts.

I usually follow a safe distance. When someone gets too close to me, I have been known to do crazy things, like slow down drastically. I have also stopped short, & then floored the gas pedal & scare the living daylights out of a tailgater. If he hits me in the back, it is usually his fault anyway, & it would have to be long & drawn out on court to get that off his driving record.

Not me, I'm the one that is a mile behind the next car and get the people behind me mad. Oh well, I am a firm believer in "safe following distance". Think this habit of tailgating is just another example of people trying to get no where too fast and not thinking about anyone but themselves - like they are the only ones on the road and everyone else is supposed to get out of their way.
