Default Do you hate tailgaiters?

I thought you guys could enjoy this thread. I'm thinking about routing by window sprayers to the back on my NB, not like the stupid things work anyway.

I thought you were talking about sports tailgating until I came in the thread. I was fully prepared to flame you. Now I'm disappointed.

Funny I was in a confrontation yesterday with some idiot this thing wouldve been perfect. Also you might want to carry a pipe or a bat in the cockpit just in case the guy you decide to **** with is 6'5"+ 250lb+ roider son of a bitch, is non related to yesterday and dont ask how I know.

Also funny in that forum the most common SN is riceeater

nah thats why i drive mycar if the guy is full size all the better when i breack his damn neck. Only two things change when your oponent is bigger, the thud when they drop and the amount of lethal force your conscience will let you use. If the guy is big im definatley not gonna play i'd just straight up do whatever i could to permanently put them out. When people see and realize that you seem to have less confrontations. The sprayer thing is a good idea i've often thought of rigging some nice bright lights on the rear of my car to blind tailgaters or just a brake light defeat switch, esp in my nissan so they wont have any warning when i put my truck through there pos tailgating ride.

When people are riding my ***...nuts, bolts, nickels, peppermints, pens, lit cigarettes and many other solid objects magically get caught up in the wind going over my car and right onto theirs. If the top is up and my car isn't freshly washed, I just hit the windshield washer.

Though this idea is rather nice..and easy since out batteries are in the trunk.
Water + hint of pepper spray = profit. Funny thing about the pepper spray is if it dries on the car and they go to wipe it off later..they still get thier *** kicked by it. Or add a hint of sulfer powder and watch them gag. Spoiled milk wont hurt paint finish.
But as someone in there was smart enough to point out, given the turbulence behind the car, whatever you shoot will most likely get back onto your car as well. Though i'm sure with a high enough pressure nozzle and good research, you could probably find a combination with little or no blow-back.

I do keep a 28" pry-bar in my car now..and I sharpened the end of it, just in case of that kinda of confrontation.

I pretty much hate everyone on the road when I'm driving. It always seems like when I'm in a hurry, everyone is on a Sunday stroll and vice versa.

I've actually thought of doing this before but never followed through with it. I'd rather try and avoid a situation completely rather than provoking it. I'm not really worried about my own safety, I'm worried about going to jail for my piece of **** temper.

To date the best **** you I ever gave back to a guy was with a cigarette. He was tailgating me and I looked in the mirror and shook my fist at him like "back the **** up dude before I kill you" only to receive the finger back. I speed away and leave him 20 cars back, only to pull up at a red light that I needed to make a left at. I see him coming in the rear view and right as he went by I flicked the cig out the passenger side of the car and what do you know, right into his window and hit him in the face. ******* guy didn't even hit the brakes and kept going. I was laughing about that for hours after the fact.

First, a little background. It was Valentines about two years ago. I had just dropped some balloons and **** for my GF at the time I was on my way home when some ******* in Benz starts tailgaiting me. I was just crusing at the time mostly because my clutch was slipping really bad. I was a red light with the top down, as the the light turns green I notice a bus is stopped about 50m from me, right where I had to pick my brother up. I dont go at once on the green and the ******* in the Benz automatically goes horn happy, so I fliped him off. The ******* guys goes nuts and stat to try to get ahead of me to cut me off. I tried to gas it becasue there was a rather curvy road ahead which I knew very well, but my clutch took a ****. I ended up behind the bus, the guy imediatly cuts me off and gets out of the car. This ************ was HUGE I start looking around for something I could use for I know no ******* way am I gonna have a fare fight with this ****, if worse comes to worse.

So we're out of the car just yelling at eachoter at which point my younger brother saw what was going on the he approached us. Nothing physicall happened. However I know that had it been late and not during rush hour it wouldve been a different story.

So now I also carry a bar right next to me just in case.

I probably would have gotten out and knocked your teeth out of the back of your head, so be careful as to who you do that to. Some crazy people will blow your *** away for something like that.

I always liked my moms Mercedes that has the rear sun visor that would fold out over the rear window. I always wanted to write something offensive on it so I could push the button and make it pop up on a tailgater.

It's amazing how much space you get when you take your handgun out and place it where it is visible to the person behind you.... I usually just have a baseball bat handy though.

Not sure if that is still considered concealed, might want to be careful with that. Might get you in trouble depending on the local laws. Carrying in the Miata is now so hard to do without my door pockets. Gun used to fit PERFECTLY in there, but I went with the Katzkin panels and lost the pockets. Only other place I have is in the floorboard under my legs. Waiting for it to slide under my pedals one day.

The pry-bar can both smash stuff with a swing, and I'd be willing I could tear (literally)up some sheet metal with the tip.

No, my patience has finally worn down.



Though I do have fanticies about the next ******* in a SUV that gets up on my *** with their high beams on. I would love nothing more than to get out, and smash their headlights effectively disabling the driver from going anywhere.

I have always had a concealed permit. And as long as I'm not aiming it specifically at a person, nothing they can do about it. I can take it out and set it on the dash or passenger seat as many times as I wish.
