Slowing down was not an option and nether was speeding. That's like asking why did I eat a cookie today besides a muffin for breakfast.

^Maturity levels directly proportional to IQ, I assume.

That HID idea is freaking brilliant though lol
You're a fucking idiot. You and your "buddy" are tools. You'll get what's coming to you someday.

That's stupid if you do that even if you are in the left lane. Even though the left lane is for passing, it doesn't mean it's for fast cars. It is used to pass truckers or cars that are driving under the speed limit. Highbeam and tailgate, one day you will get someone who will step on the brake.

i dunno bmwx1, but it really isn't necessary to be in the left lane if all you're gunna do is hinder the flow of traffic. I believe it was also pointed out earlier in this thread that left lane is for passing and right lane is cruising regardless of speed.

There is a big difference between "the left lane is for going faster than the right lane" and "The left lane is for everyone else to get out of my way so I can drive faster than they all are now."

My rule of thumb: When there is more space ahead of you than behind you in the left lane, move to the right. You are moving more slowly than the traffic around you.

I have been travelling along the number one following a respectable distance behind cars at 110+, and have been tailgated (less than a carlength) because apparently I was moving too slowly or leaving too much space. As much as I appreciate going quickly, I am not going to put myself or other people in danger by removing that reaction/stopping distance.

I will admit myself to flashing my highbeams at cars which are in the left lane but are travelling at the same speed as those in the right--usually when it is not possible to pass on the right (which is not an ideal situation, but is better than tailgating and putting people at risk). Highbeams can be used to send a little message--"hey, look up and behind you". How you choose to react to them is up to you.

What I enjoy the most is when I let a tailgatter go ahead and watching them zip in and out of traffic for a while only for me to catch up to them at a later point and in a lot of cases even pass them by not driving like a prick. As I roll by them I may even give a look over with a smirk on my face.

Yup. Follow too close VT. Press hard, 3 copies. No excuse for tailgating.

That's always full of win as well. Call me evil but sometimes deep inside I'm hoping I see them get into an accident. I'm not wishing for the driver, passengers, or any innocent people get hurt but just one of those stupid accidents where he/she just crashes their car into a mailbox, curb, or something. Just something to give a bit of a wake up call to stop driving like an idiot.

I'm sure the ratio of tickets issued for following too close to tickets for speeding is similar to the size ratio of an ant to an elephant.

For every 100 speeding tickets you issued, how many did you hand out for following too close?

What I find funny are the ones that go in the right lane (parking lane) and gun it at every light to get ahead. One time, on Kingsway from Metrotown all the way to Slocan, there were 2 cars doing that. They'd weave in and out so they'll be first in line at the light, and take off. I'd see them at the next red light every time and they are still doing the same thing. happened all the way till I turned off at Slocan.

I see where you're coming from. But the thing is as long as they are speeding within reasonable limits, it's not really thaaat bad. My personal belief on this is that if they're going to be driving faster than the guy up ahead then let him be. Shouldn't this be how the road works anyways? The faster people up ahead and the slower guys further behind? It's not like he is impeding traffic or anything. What I do hate are those guys who do this exact same thing but drive under or right at the speed limit... like wtf was the point??? I ever only use the right lane to get ahead when cars are stopped at an intersection and I'm approaching it right when the light turns green. Might as well put the momentum to good use right?
