Not true. I was rear ended in my 2005 Screw with a 6" lift at 25mph and insurance totaled the truck. She hit my Reese hitch at just the right angle and bent the frame.

I hate tailgaters also. You just have to ask yourself, what would James Bond do?
1. Oil slick?
2. Device that drops a bunch of drywall screws behind you?
3. Rear facing paintball gun with remote control trigger?
You just have to use your imagination. Or just move over and let the pass.
I prefer to let them go for the sake of public safety!

This is what I do also. Most of the time they'll drop back, but not always. If they think you're having vehicle trouble they'll go around you. It gets to me also when folks tailgate, but pretty much everyone around here carries a gun, so I rarely even honk my horn at anyone, much less slam on the brakes or wave unfriendly or anything like that. There's too good of a chance of winding up with lead poisoning.

Default I hate left lane Riders

Well the reason they are tailgating is you are obviously riding in the left lane and they wish you to move over and let them go by. The fact is that if you are not passing and are riding next to someone you are making for a more dangerous road then them tailgating you.

The way I was taught is even on a 2 lane road if someone is wanting to pass you just pull over and be courteous and let them go by. What is the skin off your noes if you do that seeing as you aren't in that much of a hurry anyway. Where as courtesy gone in this world? Where have the simple rules of the road gone? Frustration caused by people not being observant of others on the road that's where. You make everyone behind you feel like you have entitlement in that lane by blocking it up and being a jackwagon. If you had just pulled over and let folks by they would not be frustrated with you and would have just passed you and allowed you back into the lane after they passed without a glance. But no you feel you own the road and someone in more of a hurry than you should wait behind you.

Most driving I do anymore is on 2 lane, usually 5 over. Even with plenty of room for the a**wipe to go around, they don't. Only thing I can think of, the idiots are just a bunch of NASCAR wannabees. They've got the problem, not me. They need to quit texting/yapping on their umbilical cord.

I had a neighbor who took the lightbar from the roof of his truck and put it between the tailgate and bumper. Claimed tailgaters suddenly disappeared.

Another put a camera like a go pro facing the rear. Most people think theyre being filmed. Makes them feel stupid I guess.
