Today, I was driving on the highway and a cop had his radar gun out. The woman in front of me panics and slams her brakes on, causing me to rear end her. The cop cited me for "tailgating" and I have to pay for the damages on both of our cars. FML

  • Thats the technical definition of tailgating. If you're so close to the other car that in a situation in which the car in front of you suddenly breaks, and you rear end the car in front of you, that would be tailgating.

    Really, what do you think tailgating is if its not exactly the situation you're in now?

  • I cant stand people who slam on their brakes whenever they see a cop. Especially when the dudes on the other side of the highway
