DrippinBalls: How would it be fraud?

Getting rear ended 3 times resulting in a settlement in your favor would be suspicious to any insurance company.

DrippinBalls: Oh, BTW, Atlanta, does that tell you anything?

Nope.


Then, you've never drove through Atlanta. If you do, good luck. You'll need it.

Maul555: Why no mention of drivers that intentionally piss off traffic behind them. Like one time I came up behind a person doing 25 in a 45, tailgated them, and they slammed on their brakes, trying to get me to hit them. Sometimes tailgating is deserved for farks sake!!!


It is every driver's obligation to maintain proper separation between themselves and the traffic in front of them. Period. "They deserved to be tailgated" is not a viable defense.
 
2012-01-29 04:55:32 PM  
The driver in ack of a rear-end collision is almost always found to be at fault for not maintaining a safe braking distance.

It's not a hard concept.

If tailgated, put on your hazard list and take your foot off the accelerator. If they don't get the message, tap your brakes. If stil no neurons apparent, small on the brakes (to miss the squirrel who jumped out suddenly of course).

The insurance and police report will contain that they hit a vehicle with their hazard lights on. CASE CLOSED.

Sure I have. I just can't see it being much different than driving through any other big city, with a few exceptions.

I always enjoy being tailgated while in moderate traffic, because when you're two inches off my rear bumper, that's totally going to make the ten cars in front of me move faster.
 
2012-01-29 05:05:45 PM  
Correct me if I'm wrong but in the US about fifteen cars would have rear-ended him after he stopped in the lane. First one would happen within three seconds of coming to a stop and then a continual piling in of more and more cars until you just wonder wtf?

DrippinBalls: Tailgate my ass? You'll be buying me a new car and paying hospital bills for a long time. Then, I'll sue your ass again if I can.

I have an insurance company to deal with drivers like you. Have your adjuster talk to mine. I don't care what the result is. None of it is coming out of my pocket.

And I have attorneys to deal with drivers like you. And they collect. Oh, and if you caused it, your pocket will pay. Promise.


Pretty much. A lot of insurance companies won't cover people who drive like this guy does, so at that point, it is open game for lawsuits. I had an uncle that used to toss 1/2" ball bearings out his sunroof as easily as one would flip a coin, just to fark with the tailgaiting pricks.

"Hey, maybe it was debris chucked up from my tires. Guess they shouldn't have driven so close I couldn't see their headlights anymore."

Bunnyhat: Here's the thing I don't get about weavers.

First, very rarely do you end up like this video where all the traffic on that road is spaced out enough so that he can just keep weaving in and out and actually seem to make up time. Generally you can do it just enough to get to the front and then you just join the group of tailgaters at the front of the traffic pack.

Second, it seems like an incredibly stressed out way to drive. You have to be on your toes the entire time, edge of your seat looking for openings. Seems like leaving a little bit earlier or leaving a little bit later and simply taking a more relaxed approach would serve you better. The same thing for tailgaters. That 8 feet of time you are saving riding my ass isn't gonna get you to work any faster then if you just keep the proper distance from me. It will though, give you a heart attack when you realize I have to slow suddenly.

Not a cool story.
Jerk off riding my ass when I was heading home one day. The road is a two lane affair that gets a little busy during rush hour. Lots of blind turns on the road. Speed limit is 40mph, but most people seem to do 50 or more. I was doing 45mph because I hate that road and it's about as fast as I feel comfortable with. Guy behind me in a F150 didn't feel that was fast enough. Rode my ass, literally inches from my bumper until he finally tried hauling ass around me....right into the path of a garbage truck heading the other way. Driver of the F150 was killed. Still feel sorry for hims family, but have trouble drumming up sympathy for him.

The driver hit two other vehicles, causing property damage to innocent folks who just happened to be near this asshole. Also, the driver isn't dead.

How, tell me, was this supposed to make my day?

You know what would've made my day? Watching this moron break traction and slam into the rear guard of a trailer, killing him as it peeled back the roof on his shiat-stain of a car and pinched him in half like the turd the driver so obviously is in that video.

\Too much?

You see an idiot who speeds and weaves in and out of traffic.

I see tons of idiot obstacles who spread themselves across a highway in a way preventing anyone from getting around them safely. If someone passes you on the right, you're in the wrong lane for whatever speed you're traveling.

Traffic-weavers bug me but then they're gone and not my problem anymore. What kills me, though, is when I arrive first at a multi-way stop-sign intersection and I get there first and the other guy guns it to leave before me. Usually we wind up at the same stop light and we're headed in different directions and the offender is several cars behind me. fark. YOU.

If you're trying to do 110+ in a place where the passing lane has maxed out at 85 you have a problem and I hope you learn something before you kill someone.

If you're trying to get around the old guy in a big hat and Cadillac doing 60 in the passing lane with his blinker on, I'm with you on that.

If you're on a bike, it's all you, keep the rubber side down.

Oh come on. Some people most definitely deserve to be treated the exact same way that they treat other people. Not in any legal sense, but a moral one. Tailgating is a form of communication, and when used properly, it says, "hey asshole, you're pissing off me and everyone behind me, now please kindly speed the fark up or move out of the way".

I maintain a safe distance, so you don't have to worry about tailgating (from me, at least). I would ask that you please be spatially aware at all times and shift over a lane to allow an overtaking vehicle to pass. It's not that difficult.

I find flashing the highbeams works better than tailgating. Plus, I don't risk my own car's front end.

Most of the slowpokes I see in the fast lanes are poking at their cellphones like cracked out monkeys, and paying zero attention to the road.

I tailgate to within feet, not inches, and always with my foot in contact with the brakes, because I am always expecting the jackass to tap his breaks, as its what I would do ^^

If weaving through traffic is your routine, it's not because you're a good driver, it's because everyone AROUND you is. This video is proof.

I was stopped in a rather large traffic jam and some guy decided that using the
right shoulder to pass the jam was the thing to do. I just silently cursed his arse until
I crept up a half mile or so and saw that a state trooper for once was in the right place
at the right time and had the guy pulled over. Hope you enjoyed your ticket you anonymous arse.

On a mountain road, uphill, with a flotilla of semi trucks crawling along nose-to-bumper in first gear and barely making it to the top, I decide to pass. Now, I'm going the speed limit, but I'm still passing so I have every right to be in the passing lane. I get to pass same as the speeders get to pass, and there's no law saying I have to speed to do so. Even so, I still wait until the current pack of speeders zoomed through before pulling out into the passing lane.

So I'm halfway up the hill and outta nowhere comes this black 911 and glues himself to my bumper. It's a big hill, but not like "oh we'll be on this hill for the rest of our lives" big. So I continue as planned. But this guy apparently doesn't want to wait the time it would take me to get ahead of the line of trucks. So he honks, flashes his lights, falls back and runs RIGHT BACK UP on my ass, etc. the whole way up the hill. It's not like I could have pulled into the non-passing lane even if I wanted to. The trucks were doing like 40MPH and had almost zero room between them. I had basically two choices: speed up to 150mph so Mr. Important could pass me sooner (not possible because I'm driving a farking FORD GRANADA) or stick with 55mph for the 1/2 mile or so to the top and then move over to let him by.

In the minute or so it take, he gets road ragier and road ragier. When I finally get to the top of the hill and attempt to move into the right lane, he won't let me. He darts right into the place I'm about to pull over to and then hops back behind me when I screech back into the left lane. Being in a 72 Ford Granada, it's not like I could out-accelerate the bastard. He does this a few times, but I eventually manage to fake him out by pretending to jerk back into the left lane and then cutting back into the right. Safely in the right lane, I think it's all over

But he just keeps up the aggressive driving. He would get in front of me and hit his brakes. I didn't have huge independent disk brakes, just crappy disks in the front and drums in the back (again, FORD GRANADA), so I barely manage to not rear end him. He would pretend to swerve into my lane (nearly forcing me off the road the first time). And he would shake his fist and point back and forth at the me and then the shoulder. Either he meant that he saw some sort of safety issue with my car, or he just wanted me to pull over so he could kick my ass. I'm not sure which it was.

He got tired of it after about five minutes and then zoomed away at just short of Mach 3. But about twenty miles down the road I saw a state trooper who had just pulled over a black Porsche 911. I can't say for sure it was the same guy, but if Karma has any say in the course of the universe, that would have been the time for it to speak up.

How would it be fraud? I was driving in the slow lane, at the speed limit and get blasted in the ass? That sounds like fraud to you. Oh, BTW, Atlanta, does that tell you anything?

Every once in a while I see a nice kharma justice handed out, but most the time it seems people driving like nuts get away. My favorite was this one time coming home from work there was an issue on the highway and you could see everyone slamming on the brakes. I decided to not stomp on the gas just to slam on the brakes so I decided to casually approach the area. This Audi TT behind me was crawling up my butt and decided I wasn't cluing in and decided to pass on the shoulder. He peeled out and left me behind and got up to a decent speed. Swerved back into our lane with just enough time for the brake check and slammed into the car that was ahead of me. As I passed honked/waved.

The thing that gets me is when someone sees me coming and pulls out of a side road in a huge frickin' hurry... only to go 5 mph under the speed limit. (And occasionally they have the balls to brake check me when I inevitably end up on their ass.) I hope one day they try that same crap on an icy road with an oncoming semi truck.

Other than the traffic clogging accident, I don't have a problem with drivers like this. They zoom by and are gone. The ones I loathe are the ones that zoom up, I get over, then, they sit next to me forever. They don't pass anymore cars. We get stuck behind the slow moving semi. A long line of cars backs up behind Mr. Can't Pass. Sometimes he slows down enough (WAY below the speed limit) that I can get out and around the semi. I see him way back there as other cars get around. Then, he's Mr. Zoom, zoom again. Repeat.

You want to know why people don't let you pass, it's this. Pick a speed. Stick with it for a while. Really, you'll like it.

Scruffinator: When I was 18 or so I was driving to Charleston SC on 26. Must of been 6-7 AM, had driven all night, and people were just farkin flying down that road. I was doing 90 or so in the slow lane, people flying past me on the left like nobodys business. I decided, fark it, waited for an opening and gunned it into the fast lane. I topped out at 105 and people were still riding my ass. I just got back in the slow lane and went back down to 90. Didn't see a single cop all the way from Columbia to Charleston.

Hell, people don't even go that fast when they're leaving Detroit.


I think it's too busy now but I can confirm that from about 1990 to 1995 the drive back to LA from Vegas on I-15 on a Sunday afternoon was a motorcade of cars doing 100+.

I tend to actually leave the recommended following distance between me and the car in front, but there's almost always someone the usual car length or two behind me. I'd say about 90% of the time that I change lanes the guy that was behind me immediately floors it, so they can sit right behind the car that was in front of me...

That's far too close. If the guy in front of you has to brake suddenly, no, you won't have time to brake.

hbk72777: I always notice when a moron makes a dangerous/stupid/dipshiat move, that they've done it before. How do I know? Because they have damage in the exact spot where they'd be hit if they did said move. The idiot that jets out of the gas station 10 feet in front of you, of course he has his right front end smashed. The guy who constantly brakes for no reason, nice crackled bumper/ door (if it's more than likely an SUV/Caravan). Never fails.


I've noticed this too and I have pointed it out to my friends. We've now made it into a game with points as to how much damage the moron has vs how stupid the move. We've noticed that if you see a car with major damage you will see them do something stupid within a mile or so.

I love farking with assholes like that when I'm doing long distance interstate driving. I drive a Mustang; it's not the fastest car in the world, but it's fast enough that when I see somebody flying up the right-hand lane to try to cut in front of me right before I pass a semi I can hit the gas and leave them slamming on their brakes with nowhere to go. Some kid in a lowered Chevy S10 tried it on me the last time I was driving through Nashville. After I blocked him he swerved over behind me and rode 6 inches off my bumper. After we clear the semi he immediately jumps over into the right lane again to try to whip past me. I say try because I then gave it just enough gas that he was able to keep pace with my right rear fender and nothing more. Then as we approached the next clump of cars he swerves back behind me and proceeds to ride 6 inches off my bumper again, as if I'm supposed to be intimidated. This goes on for two or three more packs of cars before we hit the city limits and the interstate switches over to four lanes. At that point the guy cuts across three lanes to the right, weaves through traffic a bit like the guy in the video and the cuts back over to the far left lane - one car ahead of me. By then I just shook my head and laughed.

tillerman35: this black 911


Everything in your story after this point was completely redundant. :-D Assholes drive BMWs while fantasizing about the 911 that they'll buy someday. The black 911 is the cheapest you can buy; any pretty color is several $K more.

padraig: "I tailgate to within feet, not inches"
For fark's sake, that's supposed to show you as somebody reasonable ?


The "inches" thing would be safer at that point, as you've acknowledged that in the event of a short stop, you're going to hit them. Less run-up, less speed differential, less damage/injury. Still firmly in the category of "dick driving" but safer than a few feet back.
