Today, while driving home, some idiot kept tailgating me, so I slowed down, hoping he'd overtake me. He didn't, so I pulled to the side of the road. He did the same, in front of me. He kept toying with me until I crashed into another car trying to speed away from him. FML

And OP might be one of them. You don't get involved when someone's trying to play games with you on the road, you ignore them. If their behavior actually endangers you, you write down their license plate to report them to the police and park your car until they arrive. If you take the bait and try to speed away, you're only engangering the rest of the people on the road and might cause an accident like OP did.

Um, 2 ton bomb? Most vehicles are under 1 ton unless it's a commercial vehicle. Most are probably at or near 1/2 ton. And while I'll grant they are weapons, I'm not sure I'd call them bombs.

103, you are very wrong. Most vehicles are 1-2 tons heavy. What you are thinking about is towing capacity. A half ton pickup probably weighs two tons, but can tow a half ton.

I don't think that would really do any good because the guy didn't legally do anything wrong that OP could prove (at least I don't think). Now if OP had brake checked him, It would've been his fault if he rear ended OP.

It is called harassment and tailgating is considered reckless driving. As well as when the guy got infront of him and purposely went extremely slow (assuming he went extremely slow) is against the law to do it without purpose(car problems/towing/tractors ect are obvious exemptions) in the end OP probably won't get a dime but he can still report the guy that was doing those things.
