RANT: Why are you tailgating a clearly marked Search Dog car?

Little Miss BMW: Why are you tailgating at 60 mgh (5 over the speed limit) a car that is clearly marked as carrying a "Search Dog"? Why would you do this, putting the driver (me), but more importantly, my dog at risk? It was a cold morning and icy in spots. Why would you do that other than you are an idiot, selfish, and self absorbed? I am off to training, to volunteer, what are you off to doing?

I pulled over and she went on to tailgate the next car.

Had a sewer pump truck tailgate me going to Wednesdays training too. I am not a slow driver either.

Why can't people back off?

And for the record, this is about all dogs that are transported in the rear of cars, all dogs, and all people not just search dogs. This is so not worth the risk to others and if you hit me, I will sue you to high heaven.

STOP TAILGATING.

Sorry just in a bad mood over humanity I think.

I have always wanted paint guns all around my car that I could deploy at these idiots. Wouldn't that be fun! Honestly, I drive 5 over (not if there was ice!), and slow way down if someone gets on my tail.

People don't care what is in the ride...I don't advertise that I have dogs in my vehicle, and cringe when someone will tailgate me. I get in the other lane quick to let them do it to someone else. It's all about them. I drive 200 miles every saturday to train and it never fails. I drive the Chicago to Detroit corridor...and vice versa, lol.
Not worth pissing someone off if they are being selfish idiots, I just get out of their way and let them harass someone else.

My slow down is when I get to a passing zone. I want them GONE around me BYE. With road rage, I don't want them mad.

Having stickers/signs/etc. on the car really won't affect anyone else's driving habits. I find the best thing to do is to give yourself a few minutes of extra time and cruise in the right lane - it's by far the most relaxing and stress-free way of driving, and gives tail-gaiters and other fools an opportunity to pass you.

If you're being tailgated in the left lane, then regardless of your speed (& the speed limit) you need to move over and let the traffic pass. Playing the "I'm righteous and already speeding" card will not do anything but encourage road rage and endanger everyone around you.

True, but I usually travel two lane highways. It's difficult for the tail gaiters to pass, but they still try. Mostly I'm 3-5 over the limit, and I catch up with them the next little town.

Two lane roads are the only place I encounter tailgaters. Most typically when I am on an unfamiliar stretch of road so I am not exceeding the speed limit OR after dark during the fall (sorry, I really don't like eye to eye with Bambi)......

I always move over if I am on a multi-lane road and I can. I get more angry about people passing on the right weaving in and out of traffic not even giving you a moment to respond.

I like to slow way down. If they get mad I give a little wave and blow kisses6. People don't care about you. Its all about themselves.

People tailgate my horse trailer all the time, despite being clearly marked "Show horses: keep back." The person I got the trailer from had said, "maybe if people realize that if anything happens to my horses and they're worth more than they make in a year, it won't work out well for them, they won't tailgate." Guess what- it doesn't work. People are just idiots. Another friend has "Smile- you're on camera!" on the back of her trailer and that actually does seem to deter people (well, she also drives like a maniac....).
