    Cool Damn These Fast Drivers Round Here!!!

    I am driving home and in the pokey lane when these tailgaters try and almost hit the rear end of my car coming up on my car fast. So I arm signal for them to go round. The traffic is somehow all doing a U Turn illegally in the next lane over and both cars almost crashed. damn drivers, esp on a Friday late afternoon, early evening!!!So this makes me extra nervous driving on the road round here! hate driving but must go to work!!!PS < I want a Tesla(for free if they want to donate 1 to me just to show they love me), or a Jeep Cherokee, or not sure what else but need to decide in a few yrs.

    Unfortunately it's a common problem in England as well. It's like drivers have obtained their licence with a pack of cookies lol

    I dislike tailgaters even more than people who drive too fast, as not all folks who drive too fast tailgate me.

    Tailgaters make me feel nervous for obvious reasons. And it's a violation of my personal space anyway.

    I do own a car, but don't drive much anymore since my panic and anxiety are a danger to others. I only drive 10 minute away from home and no farther - and only when traffic is slow. I can't even have the radio on while driving as I easily get distracted now and lose focus. Road Rage is a real problem as people are at their breaking points already, and feel powerful behind the wheel. Driving used be be a relaxing and cathartic experience; but not these days.

    The vehicle I now drive is a Chevy HHR, which is a bigger vehicle than the cars I used to drive. I've found that having someone tailgate me when I'm driving my HHR causes me less anxiety because the vehicle I drive is larger. When I used to drive small cars, I felt more threatened when someone tailgated me.

    Everyone who drives should know the dangers of tailgating others.
