...in Boston, where tailgaiting at inches going 75mph is considered normal on the southeast expressway....

When the hell can anybody get to 45 mph, much less 75 mph, on the expressway?

In my opinion, it's worse on 128 -- and tailgating at 75 IS a reality.

Yes, and usually texting or yakking on the cellphone.

You're right, of course, but I've unwisely gotten out selectively (e.g., a little old lady on a cellphone way too close behind me) a few times to literally explain why I'm driving 10 mph in a 40 zone, for example (so they have time to stop, or at least to reduce the damage). No, I won't do it again. Too bad we can't safely use rational communication like that any more, as some of the alternative solutions to tailgaters are not as pleasant.

The increase in number of cars produce experience drivers. There is need of some harsh rules in issuing license and proper driving test.

OMG, what if that granny pulled out her Glock and unloaded on you? Did she at least "Bitch Slap" you? Hold on, she was just a cougar looking for a little IsoLove? Inquiring minds want to know.

Only if she's "250 pound, Tae Kwando green belt, ex-desert motorcycle racer, weight-lifting, licensed and well-trained pistol packer, very feminine lady"

techno900 and pueno hit one of the biggest nails right on the head, use of cellphones while driving. Someone doing something stupid in front of you? Sure enough, when you pass them, they're on the cellphone. The situation is out of control and it's getting worse. Unfortunately, it's happening everywhere.

She stopped tailgating me. Mission accomplished, and I lived to type about it ... that time.

Other means towards that objective are safer for me, even if not for the tailgater.

Please use larger bold text in posts. It makes it easier to read while driving.

Very funny, thanks for sharing--even those unaware of the irony!
