You don't police the roads. You were probably some ass cruising in the passing lane. If someone's annoying you, just let them pass so both of you can get on with your lives.

The OP derserved everything they got. These stupid irrespectful twats should not be allowed driving liscenses

Hmm if you're being tailgated, slowing down is actually a lot safer (both for you and the car behind)... I always slow down, and I was having a chat earlier today with a friend who does it too.

Slowing down is one thing, going more than 5 mph under the speed limit, especially on a busy street, is reckless and can easily cause an accident. You deserved it, OP.

really MLIA was so boring, that when i looked at the first page i immediately came back to fml so to everyone saying some posts should be on MLIA no they shouldn'd. MLIA is to boring to read

i think the first and foremost fault lies with the stupid girl who was tailgating and was too stupid to change lanes or at least pass.

It shouldn't be illegal being it's called a speed limit for a reason and if you could handle insurance or whatever happened you should have slammed the breaks really hard(but with a good enough reason to explain to a cop and what not). Also you should fight reckless driving in court...driving slow is easily fought as safe not reckless. Say you saw them tailgating and was tought(like i was) in drivers ed to slow down when tailgated to make them more likely to go around you and avoid them rear e

I'm assuming you either don't have your permit or just don't know that you can get ticketed for it. Or maybe it's not in all states, whatever.

it is only illegal if it is causing a disturbance. going 15 under is not illegal and fighting this should get him out of it. That cop should have pulled the girl over. She was tailgating, that is reckless. If someone had hit him, because of her tailgating, she would have hit him also. Not leaving a space between you and the driver in front of you is ALSO ILLEGAL! On top of that, she was honking her horn out of anger. Most states say that this is also illegal. Honking your horn should only be use

OP stated that he went 10mph slower than the speed limit and then proceded to go 5mph even slower for each time she honked. on am average city stree of a speed limit of 35mph, this would get dangerous really quickly. if you round a corner and somebody is going 5 or 10mph, it will probably cause a crash.

LOL. I completely agree. But seriously, every consider she might have been in a hurry for a reason? and that you with all the time in the world to spite someone potentially made someone elses day that much worse? So yeah YDI, you deserved it for being a spiteful person.

Everyone needs to think about this. If the woman wouldn't pass, there was obviously only 1 lane. And if someone is riding your ass like that, you're supposed to slow down to encourage them to pass. Being 3 feet from someone's bumper isn't going to get you there any faster, so if you're not going to pass there's no point in trying to intimidate the other driver. People like that make me wish I still drove my truck around, I'd find a turn, then hit my brakes late for it, and if they hit me they

If she was in a hurry for a decent reason, she would have passed her regardless.... A lack of planning on your part doesnt mean its my emergency. How bout this... if youe in such a hurry to be somewhere, leave 10 mins earlier, otherwise, enjoy the view from behinf the person who DID leave a few mins earlier so they dont HAVE to speed or tailgate.

heres a big tip for ya, skippy. pull over n let them pass. if they must be a douchebag, let them do it to someone else. YDI

My driver's Ed teacher even said that if you go the speed limit, little old ladies are going to wave at you as they pass you by. YDI, speed up.

i did this on a driving lesson the other day (though not that slow, only 3 mph below) and once i got to the national speed limit i burnt it off. My instructor new it was the right thing to do, its practically the law in the uk
