Tailgating, or trying to intimidate by following close behind another driver, is annoying for everyone on the road and it doesn’t get anyone anywhere faster. With that being said, no one should be hanging out in the left lane. Pass and either lead or get back over right.
However, a recent Karen tried to make her point by tailgating and got exactly what she deserved–a speeding ticket.
Here’s what happened.
It’s because they take on these jerks.
If there’s an accident, it will almost always be the tailgaters fault.
But it doesn’t happen enough.
Using technology for good.
The left lane is for passing so use it. Don’t just tailgate when there’s another way around.
Especially good to use if the other driver is in a shiny, clean convertible.
And, yes tailgaters are bullies and creeps.
We love a story with a happy ending. In this one, the innocent driver gets sweet revenge, the cop gets to write a juicy ticket and the Karen gets what she deserves. We wonder if she asked to speak to the cop’s manager? That’s for another Reddit.
What do you do with tailgaters? Ignore them or try to troll them? Or are you the tailgater that believes the action is sometimes justified?
